As part of a stroll through the museum gardens on a free guide walking tour of York it copleted the historical picture but there are better abbey ruins in the UK.
Had an enjoyable stroll with hubby taking loads of photo's to treasure on a clear, sunny day. Well worth a visit as it's FREE !!!
Lovely place see on a visit to York, set in gardens and lawns, ideal for a picnic on a nice day. It is an ideal place to pass time after a river trip and the ruins are a great photo opportunity.

The remaining intact wall of St. Mary's is such a pretty site and worth a visit as you explore York. The location is surrounded by people stopping to enjoy a peaceful moment and enjoy the view.
Being about to walk around the ruins of the Abbey is a real treat for a history buff and Anglophile. The surroundings are beautiful. A must for anyone into English history.
Walking through the abbey ruins makes you think of what it would have been like in its heyday. The beautiful ruins suggests something magnificent. It was interesting to see the sarcophagi on the grounds. The gardens are lovely, too.
We came across this accidentally when walking along the river bank. It was a nice evening so wandered around and took some photos.
