The Abbey itself is very atmospheric and incredibly interesting. We spent a couple of hours wondering about, reading about life in the abbey and enjoying the grounds. Why only a score of 3? The prices in the cafe are truly astronomical! £5.40 for a toastie and it was so dissapointing! Two tiny slices of bread! For that price i expected a side salad if not a few crisps as well! Staff are very polite, hard working and efficient. Prices let the side down!

Well worth a visit. Good Parking over the main Road. Access to Abbey is free. Ground was a bit muddy so wear appropriate footwear. Grounds would be good for picnic in the summer and lots of exploring and path for kids to cycle.

Very atmospheric ruins in grounds by the river, with car parking and a great museum just over the road. Sometimes they do live theatre in the summer months when we are not covid affected!

I drive past this place daily on the way to work and recently have deiced to visit a few times both for walks and for a Halloween edition of Beetlejuice, both of which were enjoyable in their own right. The area offers a nice walk with plenty of dog walkers using the site and some interesting bits on offer to see. There is a small car park opposite if you need to drive down. If you are local I would recommend getting public transport.
