Join a tour with Tintern Abbey's very own custodian. Find out more about its fascinating history and architecture, and take a walk around to learn more about the site's tiny book rooms and vast cloister.
Tintern was only the second Cistercian foundation in Britain, and the first in Wales. The present-day remains are a mixture of building works covering a 400-year period between 1131 and 1536. Very little remains of the first buildings but you will marvel at the vast windows and later decorative details displayed in the walls, doorways and soaring archways.
Tours will be at 11.00am, 1.00pm and 3.00pm.
