Great site for pictures of the awesome structure! Gift shop and restrooms available for travelers. Able to accommodate many buses of tourists. Convenient for those traveling Wye Valley.

Today we went out alone the Wye Valley and visited Tintern Abbey. Parking was £3 but the parking machine was broken so it was free today. The ruins are quite spectacular and it is easy to spend an hour wondering and losing yourself around here. After we had explored the ruins then we walked along the main road to the village and discovered a very pleasant little area complete with a cafe. The walk back was improved by taking a footpath along the river to avoid the main road. An enjoyable hour and recommended.

At one remove from heaven's gates pure poetry comes to mind: not only Wordsworthian, Benjaminesque, or Shades of Philip Larkin. Who could not be inspired to admiring prose and poetry among such magnificent ruins? I was. But words failed me. Thoughts remain though of a very informative system of guide/information points in all areas of the Abbey. The shop sold items of impressive quality. Nearby, I was able to avail of a range of refreshments. An historic experience - not to be missed by any visitor to the area. Only one gripe: my female companion - from Germany - rated the toilets as unusable from the normal expected hygiene standard. Fortunately, the available adjacent hotel and pub facility mitigated her disappointment. Once a month a genuine Monk leads a guided tour. I'd go back for that..

Extremely interesting and atmospheric, fantastic to photograph. Lots of information on hand, although we didn't take advantage of this particularly given our very active 6 y/o son. Plenty of parking and a friendly visitor centre/shop. Would highly recommend - one of the most intriguing places been in years.

It’s a great place to stop for a coffee and a little walk by the river. Tintern Abby looks fascinating and the history very interesting. Walking by the river on the sunny day near by lovely cottages such a relaxing experience. Car park has offer if you eat/drink at the pub then is free. We find a small tea room with proper coffee and I would recommend it. There is a walk-in bridge on the river and you can go up to the hills in the forest what I have done many years ago. It’s clear your mind out and definitely recharge your energies.
