  • Sadly there is little left of this monastery that sits at the back of the Canterbury Cathedral built in the 14th century but it is worth a visit and you might imagine what it looked like back when was...  more »
  • We could see what we wanted to see at the Abbey without paying the entry fee. We asked if we could have a look in the shop and were told we had to pay a fee to enter the shop as a museum was attached,...  more »
  • We didn't think we'd be visiting the ruins very long but ended up there about 2 hours. It has an interesting history and is well presented.

  • Definitely a place to visit. Maybe a little out of the canonical Canterbury tours, but full of charm and romance . A useful place to understand the importance of monasteries in the past and the transition from Catholic church to England Church with the closure of the Abbeys.
  • Not a great deal of the old Abbey left (Blame Henry VIII for that) , but great place for a bit of history for what is essentially the birthplace of Christianity in England (went all down hill after this), audio guide is a wealth of information ... and included in the price. Oh and the Museum/information centre is really informative too.
  • Short walk from cathedral. Didn't pay to go inside but liked what I saw from the outside.
  • Able to take dogs inside and you also have tables inside so great place to visit around lunch time and enjoy the site.
  • Another great English Heritage site, full of history and plenty of walking on a nice sunny day. The audioguide us very good as well, and only a 5-10 minute walk to the city centre and cathedral.
