Tintern Abbey is one of the most stunning historical sites in the UK, and a visit here promises to be a truly unforgettable experience. Located in Monmouthshire, the abbey is situated in a breathtakingly picturesque location on the banks of the River Wye, surrounded by lush greenery and rolling hills.

The abbey dates back to the 12th century, when it was founded by Cistercian monks. Over the centuries, it has seen its fair share of turmoil.

However, despite the hardships it has faced, the abbey remains a remarkably well-preserved example of Gothic architecture and continues to captivate visitors from around the world with its awe-inspiring beauty.

When you visit Tintern Abbey, you'll have the opportunity to explore the vast grounds, taking in the stunning vistas and soaking up the history and culture of this remarkable site.

You can wander through the ruins, admiring the intricately carved stonework and marvelling at the vaulted ceilings that seem to stretch up to the sky. You'll also learn about the daily life of the Cistercian monks who once called this place home, and the significant role that the abbey played in the religious and cultural life of Wales.
