A lovely, must see area for the visitor. The formal gardens have wonderful displays of colour most of the year. The Abbey ruins within the gardens add historical interest and the rose garden a peaceful resting place. The sensory garden looked a little sad on...More

Visit at least once a year with the children. Always turns into a giant game of 'It' which keeps them busy for ages! Beautiful place with lots to see and do. The only negative is that they close the toilets VERY early and lock the...More

Floral, historical, fun and proper. This is a park with views and activities. Splendid caged birds and multiple squirrels that you mustn't feed.

The Abbey gardens are a lovely place to stroll on your own, with a friend, or with family. Or take a picnic. They are picturesque, well maintained, and family friendly. The Abbey ruins and gate, and the Cathedral and church add to that delightful English...More
