Overview

One of the four border abbeys, Jedburgh Abbey was founded by David I in around 1138 for Augustinian canons. Explore the fascinating Jedburgh Abbey along with its visitor centre and surrounding herb garden with aromatic plants and a stone display at the west end. The church was built in the Romanesque and early Gothic styles and is remarkably complete. Jedburgh Abbey’s close location to the English border meant it was frequently targeted by invading border armies. Remains of the cloister buildings have been uncovered and finds from the excavations, including the 12th century 'Jedburgh comb' and an eighth century shrine are on display.

Nice abbey ruins perched above the large free carpark. Enclosed gardens and ruins accessed through visitors centre. Probably a little pricey if you arent into ruins.

This is a very well laid out site with an excellent modern visitor centre. Near the front entrance to the church is a separate exhibition about the building of the Abbey and includes some interesting stonework. There's plenty of information boards but no so many...More

We visited several of the Borders Abbeys and Jedburgh was a highlight. The visitor's center and signage help provide a vivid glimpse back to the 12th century.

We didn't go through the Abbey but you can see it from the outside. If you wanted to though it was reasonable at £5 per person. Lots to see in this quaint little town that we found by accident on our drive to Melrose abbey....More

We really enjoyed our visit to Jedburgh Abbey. Entrance fee £6 or £4.80 concessions. We were lucky to have a Guided Tour of the garden - the volunteer was very knowledgeable and friendly. The free audio guide was great too!

Myself, my fiancé and his mum and her husband all visited the Abbey today. We are all fascinated with the fact that Jedburgh is such a small town but has such a lot of history. The grounds and architecture of Jedburgh Abbey are absolutely stunning....More

Definitely, we took ours with us all over Jedburgh and he thoroughly enjoyed roaming around the abbey, Jedburgh is a very pet friendly place we found. A lot of the cafes let dogs in too which was good.

The Abbey is in the centre of the town near some lovely cafes and shops. It is an easy walk to get there. If coming from outskirts public transport will be available.
