  • Some great history here - especially if The Dissolution of The Monasteries and The Pilgrimage of Grace is your thing.
  • Gorgeous, really enjoyed walking around the grounds on a cold frosty morning.
  • These are purely ruins, only small parts of this once majestic building can still be seen. May I suggest going to the main house where you purchased your entrance ticket..(Small Charge) and ask to see the model. With this model in your mind, it will be much easier to imagine how it once stood as you walk around the ruins. It is a very restful, peaceful place, ideal to sit and read or have lunch. Explore the Gardens which unfortunately damaged during the recent floods, are already benefitting from hard work from the small garden team. A Cafe has once again been opened for simple snacks and meals.
  • Good food, and drinks.
  • really good place to do graffiti
