The sun was shining and with some snow on the ground, it all made for a perfect scene. Staff was very friendly and ticket prices were reasonable (£6). We also had our £3 for parking taken off one of the tickets. It was a lovely walk around the abbey and between the pamphlet and the signs, we were able to... More

Have wanted to visit this Abbey for as long as I can remember. I know you can see the Abbey from the road but you don't get the same feeling as standing inside the main section. Redeemable £3 car park again the entrance fee of £6 each. Well worth it. We were there for around an hour. If the weather... More

Tintern is the most atmospheric ruin you will ever visit. Shrouded in mist or streaming in sunshine it evokes the past like no other place. Situated on the beautiful River Wye, it is a must visit. Even if you don't pay to go in, you can enjoy the site of this ruined abbey from the river side, but walking in... More

I was surprised at how little signposting there was for the abbey and was starting to think sat nav had done me wrong and then you go round a bend and wow. The abbey is impressive to behold and at £6 each worth a nosy round (car parking is £3 but you get it back). My only comment is I... More

Visiting Tintern Abbey was one of my favourite attractions during our few days in wales. The abbey is huge and imposing in a lovely area. We were astounded whilst walking around it and found the experience very humbling. It was very reasonably priced too.

One of the really important sites in South Wales. The drive alone along the Wye Valley is worth the visit. Lovely walks all around as well as the Abbey itself. Easy parking close by.

An essential site to visit in this region. A lot of work has been carried out and much more is planned so a return visit may prove to be of value.
