  • Such a beautiful place to visit. Make sure you take a nice family picnic and make a day of it. The upkeep of these gardens are obviously important and this shows when you wander through them. Wildlife can be seen wandering about...wonderful! These gardens deserve a visit.
  • Absolutely love it. Great for both children and adults alike. Beautiful flower displays. Wonderful history with the Abbey ruins. You can always find some peaceful place to sit.
  • Public toilets (could use updating), play area. Good place to spot squirrel & ducks. Very busy this summer. Small cafe hot/cold drinks, ice creams (next to bird aviary). Nice for stroll, very picturesque flower beds & ruins.
  • I am always surprised by the beauty of the Abbey gardens. The flower beds are spectacular, the ruins are interesting to walk around, the kids play area is good, there is a kiosk for hot drinks and ice cream, and there are public toilets. Always a pleasure to walk around.
  • A lovely place to wander, picnic, contemplate the ruins, enjoy the flowers, birds and ice cream...Full of happy memories for me of time at the playground when the children were little, too. The playground is even better now, with woven, sprouted willow creating a natural boundary.
