This abbey is stunning and has been kept in magnificent shape! The stain glass windows are gorgeous with a few almost from the ground to the ceiling - very large. Beautiful stone work, stunning ceilings and archways. It’s such a privilege being able to see such a beautiful abbey in such great shape and very well kept stain glass.

This is a a bit of a wander off of High Street and it seemed like most tourists were happy to see St Mary's cathedral we didn't see many at the Abbey. This is a beautiful building and part of the with spectacular windows.
