Intended to have a short visit to Tintern Abbey to have a quick look round. Hadn't been there for a while and was astounded to find it cost to get in. We didn't bother as we only intended a brief peep. The cost of £24...More

Tintern Abbey was very interesting (if you like history, which I do). The information boards in the various sections were informative and helped you understand what life was like for a twelfth century monk. It has a timeless ethereal beauty and the setting was lovely...More
