Very interesting Abbey and we were allowed to visit the crypt. There are volunteer guides to guide and tell you the history of the Abbey. Our guide was wonderful. Would recommend a visit to the Abbey and the town and wider area.

Visits to the Abbey are free with donations encouraged. The interior was beautiful with magnificent stained glass windows and stonework. A small exhibition/museum area had interesting historical information for both adults and children.

Another superb medieval monument to faith and religion, this wonderful place is worth an extended visit. Having been to Corbridge Roman Town that morning, and Prudhoe Castle the day before, to see the actual Roman cavalry tombstone reproduced at the Corbridge museum, stones from Corbridge...More
