About this Event

A Cistercian abbey, founded c. 1200 by William, the Earl Marshall, and named after Tintern in Wales. The remains consist of nave, chancel, tower, chapel and cloister. It was partly converted into living quarters after 1541, and further adapted over the centuries. The Abbey was occupied by the Colclough family from the 16th century until the 1960s.

In addition to visiting Tintern Abbey enjoy a free visit to the Colclough Walled Garden for Tourism Day! Situated a short walk away from the abbey the walled garden was built by the Colclough Family in the early Nineteenth Century.

Restoration work began in July 2010 and the original layout of the garden has been reinstated as it was in the 1838. The main features of this 2.5 acre stone/brick lined walled garden include curved corners, two intra mural structures on the dividing brick wall which splits the garden in two sections, east and west.

10.00 - 17.00 with last admissions at 16.30 .
