Such a beautiful building in the heart of Malmesbury. A must for any visitor. Some of the most impressive views are from the surrounding fields where the full magnificence of this structure can be best appreciated.

a great local church, vibrant and quite 'modern' in its attitude to 21st century religion, whilst retaining all the virtues of an ancient abbey. Only the nave left ( the perils of mediaeval construction??). Good choir - carols by candle light a must for Christmas celebrations

A very important historical building in a town reputed to be the oldest borough, the abby is still used and worth seeing

Although Malmesbury Abbey has lost much of its original magnificence, it is still a magical place to visit, as is the town. There is so much history there and the interior of the Abbey is wonderful. We had a snack there and I can recommend the bacon rolls!
