A great attraction for a sunny day. There are plenty of photo opportunities and the visit doesn't take long. The sword in the rock is only a 15 minute walk away. Though a beautiful location, I wouldn't recommend going too far out of your way...More

Those who got married at the abbey recently, how much did it cost to get the place for the ceremony from the municipality?
