  • Great place to go for a walk and see the Abby. £3 parking and free to view. Lovely little cafe! Staff were really friendly. We had I've creams! 😀
  • Great day out in the sun! You can climb on the ruins too but there are some steep drops. Best to park in the street and walk over small bridge.
  • Loved this place as a kid, we used to spend almost every day here in the 6 weeks holidays, haven't returned for such a long time but when I did it still held lots of memories, a lovely walk along the river and around the priory, steeped with history this place is truly worth a visit
  • Beautiful old abbey. The location itself is not very accessible, and slightly confusing entrance. Also not much in the way of information. Still, ruins are easy to walk around once you're there, with lovely views beside the river
  • Beautiful country side walk visit the priory ( english heritage ) abbey.
