Tintern Abbey Reviews
Tintern Abbey Dec 20, 2008
Tintern Abbey is a historic ruined abbey in South Wales, on the banks of the river Wye. the Abbey was held by the Cistercians, an unusually hardy bunch of souls who refused to allow fires for most of the winter, and lost out to Henry the Eighth in the Dissolution of the Monasteries.
it costs about £3.70 to get in, which is on the cheap side of average for the UK. There are enough explanatory signs to get a feel for what the Abbey must have been like, adn the church ruins are very pretty.
Disabled access is limited, because it is a historic ruin; I think you would be fine on crutches but a bit restricted in a wheelchair, especially if it was wet.
