“Nice for a quick cuppa.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

Plain and simple. Shortbread is good.
Be careful with the sell-by dates on drink cartons. Some were more than a month out of date on the day we were there. Staff (all volunteers) seemed surprised when it was pointed out.

“Stunning Building”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

This is always a great place to visit and the staff are very helpful and knowledgeable about the great history of one of the most important ancient Scottish buildings. Situated right in the town centre, it provides very easy access.

Children friendly and open free to the public.

“Awesome and grand”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

Overwhelming in size and atmosphere but peaceful. Organist was practising for an evening event and that added to the overall enjoyment and experience. Replica Paisley shawls are great value and beautiful in the well stocked gift shop.

“A Towering Treasure.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

When I arrived at the Paisley Abbey,it was at closing time and I only got to go round the grounds on the outside of the Abbey.I gleened enough information from other visitors and locals to know that it deserves its prestigious place in Scottish history.
