This allowed me to go through basically without any stopping. And the Abbey is beautiful. Definitely worth the time to buy ahead.

The reviews are right. You have a couple of hours to spare waiting on stairs, if you have kids with you it will seem like forever. This is not a stroller friendly site.

This is a beautiful historic site and has some excellent viewpoints. Plan ahead for the timing as it is very crowded, and everything takes longer than you expect (transport, navigating streets, etc)

We went to the abbey in the evening, after almost all the visitors had left the island, and were lucky enough to be there when the sound and light show was on (don't know if this is available all year). It was fantastic, highlight of...More

It depends on your interests. In a half day or so, you can clearly walk up to the top and through the abbey if you are active and in shape. You’ll also be able to stop to shop or have a meal. You could then be on your way... More

Stay on the island if you can. The hotels are old, but it's a wonderful experience being on the island after all the day-trippers are gone!
