A Wonderful Surprise

Visiting the Abbey and its grounds was a truly delightful experience. It is quiet, beautifully maintained and utterly tranquil - despite the large number of visitors. There is a remarkable sense of order and purpose about the place, and visitors take their place in the scheme of things rather than over-running it. I would recommend a visit to the shop selling products from monasteries and abbeys all over Europe. It was fascinating.
