Tintern Abbey

Possibly the best preserved medieval abbey in Wales, Tintern Abbey was built during the 12 century and its life as an Abbey stretched for some 400 years.

Today the Abbey is a big tourist attraction in the Wye Valley and is a great spot for a picnic on a sunny day.
There are a gift shop and exhibition area onsite as well as good parking and public conveniences.

Places to grab a bite to eat nearby the Abbey include The Anchor Inn on Chapel Hill which has views of the Abbey and sits practically on the bank of the River Wye, or you could try the Rose and Crown on the A466 which has views over the River.
