A great day out in good weather! Explore the history behind the ruins of this medieval abbey while strolling among beautiful greenery and along the river Soar too. There's a cafe near by too and kids can feed the ducks and geese.

ok for a week-end visit. pluses: great landscape, historical ruins, fresh air, species of plants to study, peace and quiet minus: if the weather is hot, you can suffer from dehidration, nearest place where you can get some water is actually not so close...
