  • Beautiful location steeped in history. Definitely worth a look in for the history of the building. Also a fantastic wedding venue!
  • Historic site The Abbey Church is separate from the ruined Abbey, occupying the east end of the former Abbey Church. Lots of interesting features, lovely carved pulpit, good 20th century stained glass windows, and a newly installed window by the Tiffany studio that was commissioned by Andrew Carnegie but originally rejected by the Church. Friendly and knowledgeable guides help answer questions.
