  • Would highly recommend this place, steeped in history. You can come here for some quiet reflection. Well worth a visit.  more »
  • The Abbey of St. Peter and St. Paul, have left the Church, where it lies in a tomb the your founder, a nobleman who took part in the great battle of Hastings in s. XI. The Church is charming and full of details to discover. There are a number of books "cops medievais" and BBC TV series-Brother Cadfael – where the facts happen around this Abbey and the city, which makes it more exciting to visit. Has a small gift shop and although entry is free, ask if donations to help preserve this monument.

  • A lot of history to be found in here. Nice to just sit and take it all in. Some of the staff can be very helpful. Take your time to have a good look around this place.  more »
  • Full of such wonderful history. And a telling influence on the life and development of the town and its neighbourhoods.
  • Great visit! Lovely to meet the vicar too!
  • Norman building and later on the site of previous Anglo--Saxon church. It survived the Reformation, becoming the parish church it is today.
  • Fantastic place with almost 1000 years history (founded in 1083)
  • Nice historic place and the former home of brothter Cadfael. I visited this place during a schools vacation.
