“A nice visit.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2012

Because we had a holiday out of season, we were only able to walk round, but it was nice and certainly worth a visit in the summer season.

“A real Gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2012

First visit to Sherborne and what an amazing place; the centre piece being Sherborne Abbey. Amazing fan vaulted ceilings and detailed ceiling roses, well worth a visit. And theres no entry charge (though I strongly recommend leaving a donation to help preserve the Abbey)

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2012

This is a wonderful Abbey in the most gorgeous setting in the town. It is just wonderful to walk around & a nice retreat from walking around the town, which is equally lovely

“gorgeous”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012

We love the fan vaulted ceiling and rate the abbey above many large cathedrals. The stained glass is also very lovely. If you have the time take a guided tour organised by local volunteers!
