I chose a visit to Tintern Abbey as a last port of call in visiting Herefordshire, and I'm so glad I did.
It was a very well preserved site, with excellent information boards dotted around. It was easy to get a feel for its past, and it was a very commanding sight from any angle.
I would also mention the facilities were good, and the gift shop had very nice items to buy which were a little different to most, and easy to tot up to a large bill if you weren't careful, with so much of value to choose from. Parking was also easy and close to the entrance.
I thought it might be a large place to visit, from the aerial photographs I had seen first, but it took probably around 45-50 minutes in all, and that was stopping to appreciate its magnificence.
So I highly recommend it. I would also say that the pubs close by looked really appealing, and it would be a very pleasant area to visit on a dry, sunny day.
