  • In the midst of gardens very cared, and stuck to the promenade of the River Ouse, these ruins, of great beauty, are and that hint at the grandeur of what must have been in his time. Also plant the Church original Normande and some detail as a medieval game can be seen to build words.

  • Because I love the history of architecture, this is the history of this monastery when it comes to the ruins, the original monastery was once the richest monastery in northern England, but then the convent of church reform was gradually gone, and now the rest of the walls and the remnants of the foundation are difficult to imagine the original.

  • These ruins are situated within the beautiful museum gardens. They are free to visit and quite picturesque. I found them nearly as beautiful as Inch Abbey.
  • It is just a wall in a park. A nice wall in a nice park, but nothing spectacular.
  • Ruins located in a park. No information. Snap a picture a two. Spent about 10 minutes on site.
  • Beautiful Abbey ruins and Botanical Gardens. Most days they do a free Gardens tour by one of the Park Rangers. I would definitely recommend the tour if you're interested in the plants and the history of the place. Friendly, enthusiastic tour guides.
  • Absolutely incredible. Not to be missed!
