We are members of English Hertiage so decided to visit when in the area. Very different to other ruins we have been to. Set in a beautiful part of North Yorkshire. The abbey would have been huge in its day. The surviving tiled floors are beautiful and nicely displayed. A look in the on site museum helps you to visualise what a great abbey it was. When we were there a young couple were also there and they told us they were getting married on the Saturday and were having their reception across the road at the Abbey Inn in a marquee how lovely what a great setting for a wedding. Would have liked an audio guide like some other properties provide or even some information boards.
