We had stroll through the park and rose garden. Visited the abbey, and then had a picnic in the shadow of one of the trees. Really nice spot, not to busy. Parking is free for the first hour, then 2,50 for the day.

Pretty gardens, cherry blossom and daffodils. Ideal place for family picnic. Easy parking close to high street. Pretty stream with families feeding ducks and dads playing ball with kiddies. Almost 1,000 years of history and yet does not cost a penny to visit. Very close...More

We used to live in the Abbey and would walk our dog there. It's wonderful in the Spring especially walking under the tunnel of cherry blossom trees and spotting ducklings and cygnets in April are a bonus. We still have connections to the Abbey, so...More
