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.

Tintern Village Fete. Despite the fear of rain it was a sunny day and fine evening. Another great day out in Tintern. Fun on the Leytons field, lots of stalls, fun for children and for adults. Food and drinks available, a fab magician, great bands all day and evening until midnight in a magical setting. Check out the website -... More

Always head down to Tintern and enjoy an ice cream in the Abby ruins in the summer. Lovely spot and we love the old ruins.

You go through a gift shop to get to the entrance, a well stocked shop with gifts & prices to suit all ages &... More

Visited the Abbey and thanks to goecaching visited the limekilns, the dilapidated St Mary the Virgin with fine views of the Abbey and interesting grave adornments, the lower wireworks site and the old Tintern railway station. We spent all day here. There is so much history in this village. We will be back to explore some... More

Tintern is a lovely place to spend an afternoon taking in the views of the Wye valley and exploring the independent shops. There are also some nice places to eat, I particularly recommend the Anchor. And of course a visit wouldn't be complete without visiting the abbey.
