Anglesey Abbey is a lovely National Trust property, the gardens are magnificent with something to inspire at any time of the year. Plenty of open spaces for the children to run off some excess energy as well as the wildlife discovery area and a tree house to climb. Round off with a lovely cream tea in the well stocked restaurant.

I have visited Anglesey Abbey several times over the years and invariably find something of interest. This time we spent a long time in the house and the NT guides were particularly friendly, talkative and full of information which made the visit very pleasurable. There is a large art collection together with many other collections, particularly one of clocks which... More

The house is not perhaps the best in the National Trust portfolio, but is none the less an impressive one. There is plenty to see, not least of which is the magnificent collection of clocks. The staff in attendance in each room are friendly, helpful and well informed. The mill is worth the walk along the lode, and in addition... More

On our first visit, we were very impressed with pretty much everything about Anglesey Abbey. An interesting house with much to see, the volunteer guides were very friendly and informative and helped to make the house seem warm and welcoming. Although 'between seasons' the gardens and park were very well kept and would be worth another visit when the roses... More

We visited on the warmest day of the week and had a most enjoyable time. Although the car park was very full, nowhere seemed busy, presumably because the grounds are so large. The mill was interesting, the house more so but for us the gardens were the main delight despite the fact that the spring flowers had finished and most... More

We had a wonderful day here. The watermill is certainly worth a visit with helpful, friendly and informative staff who make it so interesting. The house and its collection is amazing and the gardens are superb. I would highly, highly recommend this as a place to visit.

As National Trust members we come here quite often as there is always something new to see. This time our little boy borrowed binoculars and a magnifying glass and some laminated cards showing birds and bugs which might be encountered. Get there early as there are not many of each as sadly some people have taken them and I hope... More
