St Michael’s Abbey is a monastery and imperial mausoleum based in Farnborough and is best known
as the resting place of the last Bonaparte Emperor, Napolean III.

The Abbey has a fascinating history dating back to its creation by Empress Eugénie after the loss of
her husband Napolean III, and her son in the Zulu War in 1881, and as a base of Benedictine life since 1895.

The Farnborough monks follow a monastic life whilst also operating a farm, apiary, book bindery, and a printing and publishing house.

Enjoy a private, hour-long guided tour of the church and crypt with additional time to visit the onsite shop
