Situated in the Wye Valley (an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) and, on the banks of the River Wye is Tintern Abbey. The crowing glory of Tintern (a former Cistersian Abbey) is the ruins of the great church which was built around 1269 and 1301. It is impressive ! The Tudor king Henry VIII has a lot to answer for with the dissestablishment of this former beautiful abbey.
Spend a morning or afternoon walking around the pretty village of Tintern, don't forget to take your camera and collect beautiful memories of this special place.
The Tintern Abbey Visitor Centre is worth a visit with lots of gifts with a Welsh association. There are tea rooms (great afternoon teas) a mill and craft shops. It's a great day out for a family, particularly if you like walking as there are some lovely walking trails. The surrounding area is beautiful, go, see, reflect and enjoy !! You'll love it.
