You can spend as much time as you want here - either a fleeting visit or a whole day out. The house is beautifully restored and really interesting, large enough to hold attention, small enough not to wear you out - and crammed with interesting things. Don't miss the library (see the royal names engraved on the windows) and the... More

We visit Anglesey a lot during the school holidays. There is always something to do for the children and the gardens are lovely. The house is very interesting and the volunteers are very knowledgeable.I have always loved learning about the history behind these amazing places. We also like to bring friends and family here when they visit and have a... More

The grounds are truly stunning and beautifully kept. We also went round the house which is very well preserved and has a lot of interesting items in it. If your in the Cambridge area it's well worth stopping at even just to have a wander round the grounds.

Very pretty and not too far from Cambridge if you are based here. You can spend a whole day there and wander around the abbey.

One of the nicest properties I have visited from the very modern visitor centre/entrance which housed a well stocked gift shop and large cafeteria to the house, gardens and mill. Allow yourself half a day for this visit as lots to see and do. Run by very good Volunteers who know their stuff. Thoroughly enjoyed.

Very busy day, lots of visitors. Amazing collection and the house and garden are beautifully maintained. Very good volunteers. Very impressive, one of the NT's best. Great staff in the restaurant too....and nearly everyone said good bye, lovely touch and friendly. Great shop. Last entry to house was later than advertised, so needn't have rushed.

Good times to be had indoors and outdoors. Nice Cafe with a decent gluten free cake selection, but it can be a struggle to find a table.

I made my first trip to Anglesey Abbey about 30 years ago, and it was one of the highlights of my trip to England, I returned a few years ago in the teeth of winter, at the suggestion of a local friend who suggested I go see the garden. "What? A garden in the snow?" What an eye-opener for a... More

Well appointed house with the feature for me being the wonderful library stocked with thousands of books including many from the racing industry. Meticulously maintained property with lovely grounds. Sadly low water level meant mill was not working.

Spent a good half a day going round the gardens, mill and house. Gardens are a great mix of formal and informal and take quite a while to do if you want to visit all of it. The mill is a working one which you can see in action if you time it right. They publish milling times but it... More
