Minster Abbey offers guided tours that includes the historic background to this ancient site, which dates back to the 7th Century. Ermenburga, great grand-daughter of King Ethelbert of Kent, was granted land to build a house of prayer after the murder of her two brothers due to a political dispute in the court of their cousin Egbert, King of Kent. It is a working nunnery, and there are also the Parkminster tea rooms and play area next door, as well as gardens to visit.
