Tintern Abbey, Abbeys and Priorys Tintern, Monmouthshire - Wales where to go, what to see and where to stay in Wales


Tintern Monmouthshire Wales
Cistercian abbey, founded in 1131 in the beautiful Wye valley. It is a remarkably complete abbey church rebuilt in the later thirteenth and early fourteenth centuries, with extensive remains of cloister and associated monastic buildings. The ruins of Tintern Abbey lie between the River Wye and the A466 road at the southern end of Tintern village. The site is beautiful, with the tidal river frequently changing from a very low flow during Summer low tides to a raging torrent when Winter floods add to the high tides surging up the Bristol Channel. Tintern Abbey is just a few hundred yards from the Offa's Dyke Path and is well worth a visit if taking the north to south Wales long distance trail.
