This is such a beautiful place! It's huge and so well preserved, and the information boards are very interesting. An absolute must-visit if you're into history, and well worth the 50 minute drive from cardiff!

We arrived at the beautiful village of Tintern on a slightly drizzly day - but that just added to the atmosphere. It was 10am, it was a Friday and there were very few cars in the Abbey car park. There couldn't have been any more...More

The abbey is a very majestical place to visit. We enjoyed ourselves as a family very much, not sure we would revist as the price was above avarage for similar places we have visited over south wales. The only thing that let it down was...More

Over £6 for an adult, for maybe 30 mins. I wouldn't say it's very good but it's certainly not average either. It's very interesting & a beautiful ruin - worth a visit!
