Fantastic historical ruin that is well kept would of been a beautiful building in its day, free parking across road. If seeing a lot of ruins buy a pass to save money 3 or 7 day passes available.

Expensive for what you can see, one highlight is to find The heart of the Bruce, after several hours we located a square concert block under which we were lead to believe the heart is buried,

We stopped by the Abbey ruins after eating below. What a great place this monastery must have been with its view of the river below and the village. Stop by and look straight in. You can drive right up to it.

A stunning setting, in the town's centre, Jedburgh Abbey is a beautiful place to spend a couple of hours. The audio guide adds to the experience. The word 'ruin' really does not do the abbey justice. Don't believe me - go and take a look for yourself!

We stopped here on a tour on our way to the highlands and I'm so glad we did! We traveled in early October and the weather was perfect. We were at one time the only people in the Abbey and got amazing photos with no one in them. The Ruins are still incredibly intact and worth exploring. You'll need at... More

Fantastic trip into the past and the life of Jedburgh Abby. Excellent audio tour that gives excellent information. The audio is great for children. My 9 year old got herself all around the Abby on her own and came to tell me what she had learnt

A great ruin that holds your imagination as you drive into Jedburgh. The kids loved running around it and exploring the nooks. You can just see the Augustine monks busying themselves around the place. Overlooking the river it is a prime place for a picnic and we will do that when we return - not in December !

The Abbey is magnificent with many photo opportunities. It is lovely in the morning and spectacular in the evening lights. Paul, who worked there on 28-Dec-16 is a key reason for this great visit. With so much guidance, hints and lovely personality, Paul made the visit even better!

Largely intact and dating from the 12th century, this abbey is a "must-see" as you head up the A68. Plenty of information available at the Visitor Centre and well constructed paths and stairways to assist getting around the site. Access is still available to upper levels for some great photo opportunities.
