This was a quick stop as my friend loves Abbeys and we did not have a lot of time. We got round this in less than an hour and it was well worth it. From the road its impressive- BUT inside its amazing. The site is fairly large and if its a nice dry day, you can spend a lot... More

Wonderful romantic ruins in a great location - Look fantastic in the sunshine. If you like sites like this it is forth taking out English / Welsh Heritage Membership - It soon pays for itself as entry is free to many sites round the country one you have joined.

We visited this beautiful abbey ruins on a sunny October day and the blue sky visible through the window frames looked stunning. A friendly robin kept us company.

A wonderful sight to behold, especially in the sunshine . You just have to marvel in the workmanship that went into creating such a building and how well it has stood the test of time . Interesting and succinct information posters, dotted around the site, adds to the understanding of how it functioned in its heyday. Entry cost is very... More

This place is stunning. When you see it from the road it looks amazing, once inside it is breath taking. I really would recommend you go inside.

This is an imposing, magnificent, inspiring structure. I could see first hand why so many painters went here to capture it. The village across the way is touristy, but it does not encroach upon the serenity of the building. I actually was able to enjoy a tea from a picnic table across the access road and admire the facade as... More

This is a wonderful place to visit. We went there on a Sunday afternoon, on a glorious Autumn day and it was breathtaking. The ruin of the Abbey is amazing, so much bigger than I imagined and beautiful to walk around. The information around the site is good and interesting. The surrounding vista of trees and the River Wye complete... More

This beautiful well preserved medieval abbey is a marvel of construction and is a must see attraction when in Wales or southern England. There are a couple of nice restaurants on the site (The Anchor is one) and a souvenir shop in the reception area. Guided tours are available for a fee (entry fee is about $8/person) but there are...
