Visited the Paisley while doing family history. Beautiful Abbey in a lovely city. If you're close I would recommend taking a quick tour.

Lovely building and interesting history. Having graduated here and from Paisley, I'm slightly biased. The architecture is amazing, they open the stairwell to the roof a few times a year & the view is lovely, plus you get to see inside which only a limited amount of people have seen. If visiting look out for the Alien Gargoyle, it's an... More

We had a tour of the Abbey as part of a business group. Just walking around, there was an amazing sense of history, as the building is beautiful and the architecture is just stunning. The rooms are available to hire out for weddings, conferences and meetings and the prices for this were excellent. Very impressed with Paisley Abbey, and there... More

Although there have been many changes to it since my family was here, it is quite beautiful. The carved wooden structures inside are quite beautiful. They even have a small map to use to do a self guided... More
