“Lovely Abbey Church - not to be missed...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

So much to see - wonderful carvings, stained glass and much more. Huge! Rather incongruous shop in a side chapel. Photography permit £2 - do it!

“An excellent visit to a beautiful place.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

This abbey is full of treasures and a joy to visit. Staff couldn't be more helpful and will answer any questions you have. There is a wonderful atmosphere and the peace and tranquility is truly great. Can I also recommend a visit to the tea room and in particular the cheese scones which are truly memorable.

“Probably the most beautiful Abbey I have seen !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

Wonderful workmanship especially the inside of the roof and the tiled floor. Free to go in, you can make a donation. Wonderful little shop with very unusual items for sale.
