  • The old Abbey is located right in the Centre in a beautiful landscaped park. The remains show a rich history. You can fine here with young children. The children can clamber over the rocks and there is also a children's playground in the park.

  • Took a friend round the grounds of the old ruins and were really impressed - you can actually walk among them which in this day and age is quite surprising you normally there are barriers of some sort...  more »
  • We liked the Abbey gardens,but unfortunately the ruins are just that.We also visited the Cathedral,most of which is fairly new.  more »

  • This is the main historical center of Bury and once had a enormous Abbey. The Main Abbey Gate still stands and continues to attract people from far and wide to view it. The local council have made a great job of restoring and preserving it and you're free to wander at your own pace, particularly nice on a warm summer's day. Highly recommended.
  • So beautiful we had our family photos done there!!! I love walking around the gardens any time of year!!!
  • Just such a beautiful area, great place to sit, have a coffee and people watch.
  • I wish to see it restored....
  • Very nice historical place worth a visit
