Just spent a whole day at Torre Abbey. There is so much to see. The galleries with some wonderful paintings was a complete surprise. This place should be better known. It's well worth going.

Intriguing place with lots to see and particularly impressed that the ticket covered two days. Don't miss out the glasshouses, which even have plants for sale.
