  • Flowers were blooming and in well tended beds. Suitable for able bodied and the disabled. A good place for picnicking with plenty of grass. The Abbey Ruins add interest and the signage is informative. All in all, a small ( in area) pleasant area with adequate shaded seating throughout. Well used by locals and visitors alike.
  • This is just a straight up cool place all around. The entry gate is huge and intimidating, but walking through transports you from bustling town life to serene gardens. The abbey is a wonderful place to stroll and contemplate, while the ruins take you back to times forgotten. The ruins also make you realize just how short people were in the 1200's, just sayin'. Plenty of restaurants and pubs in the local area to keep you up an about as well.
