“Kirkstall Abbey and Abbey House Museum”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

The Abbey is an interesting place to visit, best if you have a tour guide. Just across the road is the Abbey House Museum, a reasonable entry fee, particularly a family ticket. The museum is a gem and very popular.

“Lovely place, well worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

I visited here with my friend and her husband, we had a wander around the ruins. The monastery is fabulous and the surrounding grounds are well kept and inviting. My friend's husband ended up with some stunning photos. The museum is worth a visit too and the parking was not a problem. I will definitely be going again, when the weather picks up!

“Nice to visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Really nice ruin to visit. The grounds are kept up well and there is a miniture train that kids can take a ride on. There is also a play ground by the car park and a cafe you can go into. there are often events held here too.
