  • I grew up near Furness Abbey and it is still one of my favourite tourist attractions. It is hidden in a valley just as you approach Barrow. You get a feeling of peace and tranquility as you walk aroun...  more »
  • Very impressed by the abbey but unfortunately visitor centre was closed, so was the cafe. No access to the abbey this time so would definitely visit when open. 
  • amazing place and so big..hard to believe so much is still standing..easy to park and wander around and staff very helpful

  • Fascinating Heritage property with a well thought out, small exhibition space and gift shop. Good walks around too.
  • A beautiful walk and very peaceful.
  • Imposing ruined Abbey - great for a stroll
  • A large ruin of ann Abby in a nice stretch of land.
  • Beautiful quiet place, loads for children to explore. Great little museum on site.
