This is truly an ancient site with so much of character that it just leaves you with complete wonder as to just how smart humans were so many many many years ago. Seems like a very famous tourist spot as it was quite busy on visiting. The only downside is there isn't a cafe or restaurant on site, which means that the visit is relatively short, about half hour. It was worth it anyways.

A beautiful setting in the Wye valley, the first glimpse is wonderful as you approach it. We visited on a sunny Sunday and wandered around looking at the Abbey ourselves. Then we joined a tour given by 'Brother Thomas' he explained the history of the Abbey and what it was like to be a monk there in medieval times. He was an excellent guide and the tour had it's humorous moments. I believe that Brother Thomas is only there once a month so you would need to look at the website if you wanted to do the tour
We also would recommend The Anchor pub as we had a light lunch there, before entering the Abbey, which was excellent too.

This Abbey is well worth the effort to get to. It is unbelievable to stand in and view the sheer size of it. There is a small fee for entry. Be sure to set aside at least 90 minutes to fully see the Abbey. There are many signs posted about the grounds to inform you of where in the old Abbey you are standing. Bring a good camera with you to get some great photos to bring home.
