  • Easier to get to now there is the new Halt on the GWR Steam Railway.
  • If you are interested in history & can use your imagination this is a good place to be. Beautiful setting & very tranquil.
  • Very atmospheric. Pleasant, cheerful and knowledgeable staff. Some beautiful carvings.
  • Not a lot left of what once would have been a very impressive building, but the remains are well cared for and the information boards give a good explanation of its history. Probably not worth making a special trip for, unless you're an abbey ruins completist, but if you're in the area it's definitely worth dropping in. As well as the abbey ruins themselves, take some time to look inside the adjacent Hailes church. It's a gorgeous little building that is well worth a visit in itself.
  • Not a lot left of what would have been a magnificent abbey. A peaceful place for a wander round but not really worth the enterance fee.
