  • It is worth to visit this abbey if there are not so many visitors. So early in the morning or maybe at the end of the afternoon. Clear explanation how at that time, tiles were manufactured. Gives a different view of the found tiled floor.

  • English heritage site well worth a visit if you're into history etc.
  • Really interesting place. Majority of the buildings are in tact. A must see in this area
  • Well run, very detailed with plenty of information. Fascinating!
  • Unusual in that it is more than just the ruined remains of an abbey. Some buildings are quite complete and some sympathetically restored. Gives a good idea of how the monks lived and how the community changed over time.
  • A bit pricey.
