“First visit to Paisley Abbey”
Reviewed January 15, 2014 via mobile

As a part time custodian in a cathedral very close to the same period that Paisley Abbey was first created I was very interested in finally getting the opportunity to visit this magnificent abbey.

“Paisley Abbey”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

Much much more could be made of this attraction viz

Retreats
Actors dressed as monks - the mind could greatly expand this idea
Better opening hours
Café excellent - how about a restaurant
Aggressive advertising
Graves watching
Etc

“ancient history”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

I would recommend Paisley Abbey to everyone, it is steeped in history and even has a kids favourite " The wee mouse ". Lots of beautiful stained glass and a fantastic tapestry to see.
