“Loved it”
Review of Furness Abbey

Furness Abbey
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 10, 2013

Even though the church itself was out of bounds due to conservation work, there was still lots of the Abbey left to inspect. The guide book was clear and detailed. My daughter loved climbing on all the parts of standing wall.

This is an extraordinary site. We spent hours wandering through the old structures. It is amazing to think how old it is (established in 1123)! It felt very peaceful there.
The woman (I wish now I had asked her name) who operates the gift shop and sells admission to the grounds was so very patient and helpful and took great time and care with all our questions and requests. It made the visit perfect.

The Abbey ruins are in a picturesque location. Well worth seeing but not a EH prices. Can be easily viewed and photographed from the encompassing road and footpaths. This method allows good photographic opportunities which also omit the fairly extensive scaffolding.
