  • One of the best abbeys to visit Well preserved, and the ruins are enhanced by excellent signposting of what they once were. Narrow spiral staircase leads to the classic view of the full length of the nave (one way system means there are no awkward encounters.) Very interesting architecture, well explained. Very compact site.
  • Very interesting and well worth a visit. Dogs allowed and a water bowl provided near the shop. It was empty when our little dog needed a drink but a knock on the staff door and a lovely young woman came out and filled it for us. It was a warm day and there were quite a lot of dogs there so the bowl would have been emptying quickly. I would recommend Jedburgh Abbey for people who have an Interest in this sort of place.... we certainly enjoyed it.
  • If you like evocative, partial ruins (particularly ecclesiastical ones), this has to be up near the top of the list for the British Isles. I was approached by a volunteer (approved) guide who was very informative and brought my visit to life in a way that the guide book, good as it is, could not have done. Thank you! There are other attractions in the town too!
  • Great if you like ruins of this nature. It’s very clean and organised with lots of information available, including a personal hand held audio. Very open so no shelter from the weather. Reasonable value for money. No parking at the abbey but plenty of local parking available just a few minutes away.
  • Great few hours looking round the Abbey. Extremely pleasant visitors centre looking out over a stunning vista. Very instructive information boards around the site plus a free audio guide clearly explain the development and importance of the complex. Admission only £4.80 for over 60s! Highly recommended.
