We didn't pay to go in the Abbey but you get an excellent view from outside the fence. The carpark is not too cheap but there are plenty of places to visit in the town.

Go there. Just go there. The Abbey is brilliant. Wordsworth captured its essence. But you really have to go there to fully feel it. I absolutely love this place. It's one of my favourite places ever. I couldn't believe my luck when I moved to Chepstow 11 1/2 years ago that I live just 5 miles down the road from... More

We visited here and walked along the river to the Abbey. It's a pretty village and we will be returning in the summer to fully appreciate the Wye Valley. It was so close to Chepstow where we stayed at The Coach & horses. We loved the mill coffee house and everywhere seemed to be dog friendly including our B&B.

Visit Stella bookshop for good secondhand children's books and the abbey for picturesque beauty, otherwise it is pretty average.

A picturesque village with a few shops but lovely views over the River Wye and along the gorge. Parking is a bit difficult other than down by the Abbey and then it is a short but steep climb back up to the main road.

Tintern is a lovely little village. The striking abbey ruins herald your entry to a small cluster of interesting independent shops and places to eat. The river provides pretty views and a pleasant space for wandering.

Car park is 3 pounds but you get that back if you make a purchase in the store or eat or drink in The Anchor Inn across the way.

The location is magnificent especially on a good sunny summer day. The sheer size of the ruins is incredibly impressive and you can only admire the skill and craftsmanship of the masons and builders and regret the arrogance of those who spoiled it. There is not in truth much here for children and they could soon get bored particularly if... More
