The walks here at Anglesey are a absolutely breathtaking with Mall like walks Greek statues placed at certain sitting areas. The walks all offer something different. The house sadly was closed, but I can enjoy... More

Although a little crowded at the start time it soon thins out and you... More

We visited with family on a Sunday evening. Apart for the herding of people into a marque to wait for their time slot, I thought the organisation was very good and the staff, although obviously very cold, cheerful. The walk through a selected area of the grounds was very pleasant and there were some good light shows, especially down by... More

It is now over 10 years since we lived close enough to Cambridge to easily get here, but we were back this weekend visiting our youngest son who lives in Colne. Luckily we had secured tickets for us all to see the Xmas lights spectacular at Anglesey Abbey as they were all sold out in advance - it was quite... More

This really is a great place to visit with children, elderly relatives or friends for a picnic, a walk or just a little nose around the house. It is quite relaxing and lovely on a warm day.

The winter walk is always superb and the planting is imaginative - worthy of a trip in spring, summer, autumn or winter. You'll see something different each time. The working mill, where they mill flour is also good to visit and there is a nice cafe to stop and have tea / coffee / lunch. The house is open part... More

Visited with my sister and our elderly mum who had a broken leg! We brought our own wheelchair but they have some available to use. Access was good around the grounds, the cafe and the shop. We didnt visit the house. Food was very good and reasonably priced. The gardens were beautiful. Very good day out.
