  • Although the abbey was destroyed as a functional set of building there is enough remaining to work out its layout and envisage its grandeur. The site is well kept by English Heritage. Well worth a vis...  more »

  • Came across Furness Abbey by chance and I’m so glad we stopped! Even though the weather wasn’t brilliant it was so peaceful which allowed you to really take in the full extent of these beautiful ruins. The museum was also really interesting and gave you a real understanding of how the Abbey would’ve functioned. Would definitely recommend a visit to anyone who is in the area!
  • Best place in the world! I go here when I'm upset, happy, sunshine, rain... Lovely place to have a walk and enjoy nature at its best and even a look round the Abbey with a chance to sit outside with a cuppa tea and a tea cake 😘
  • Take too long to text..but you do see people from centuries ago...also my great grandfather was head gardener and lived at manor lodge
  • Excellent day out. The ruins are impressive and, despite being sandwiched between the railway and road, the setting is calm and peaceful. Really helpful, enthusiastic staff at the museum, which has a range of interesting exhibits. Well worth a detour.
  • Historic building. Of course it doesnt have disabled access!
