  • 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 »

  • Tranquil historical place of worship which is free to enter and is most enjoyable and interesting. The grounds and ruins are extensive with beautiful well kept gardens and good signage depicting the history of this important Benedictine monastery.
  • 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.
  • Go on the walking tour. It's worth every pound.
  • very tidy and interesting place to stay.
  • So beautiful we had our family photos done there!!! I love walking around the gardens any time of year!!!
