This is an English heritage place. You will not spend a long time here but it is in the most beautiful setting and the history of the place is interesting

This beautiful ruined abbey was on our agenda and was even better than expected. While not as big as some of the more well known abbeys it showed how wealthy the abbeys were. The audio guide is a must (and free) as it gives insights...More

I was alerted to this place by brother in law and was not disappointed. Thanks to my Hassra card I have free/reduced entry to English Heritage but £5 is the usual price. It was atmospheric, peaceful and calm. Useful booklet and audio guide. Nice mix...More

Came across the Abbey a bit by accident and so glad we did. A beautiful site owned by National Trust and kept really well. Headphones available as you walk around to hear the history of the place. A peaceful afternoon in stunning scenery.

We visited the priory around ten years ago and it was fantastic but on this latest visit it's clear that it's not as well looked after. The feature garden with topiary and manicured gardens has overgrown a bit and the audio tours run out of...More
