The abbey is a large site, and features a stylish manor house that is under renovation but fits into the landscape, whilst there are is one information board there are metal tubes around the site that supply a great deal of information in Welsh and English. Good photographic images can be taken.

Great abbey full of history and so much to photograph. Well worth a visit. Needs money to maintain the building such a shame.

Incredible place local to me with loads of history. I would recommend a visit but it's just a shame that more money hasn't been invested in this place, especially when you consider its historical significance.

Good hour out for free if you have an interest in old structures and buildings. One improvement could be to add more information around the property to tell you about each area.

Impressive and larger than expected set of ruins, which provide a glimpse of what must have been a very grand set of monastic buildings. The site has a number of talking information points that provide background and details of abbey life.

At the time of this writing please note that several of the areas are fenced off for ongoing repair works which will keep this a place of enjoyment for years to come. There is, however, still plenty to explore.

Free entry. Dog friendly. Plentiful parking spaces along the street by the main abbey entrance.

Well worth a visit.

Not many people realize such an amazing place in Neath!!
The place is not big, but with substantial ruins.
Free of charge and is easy to reach by bus from Swansea.

Very ancient and historic place.. Quite close to neath and easily reachable by public transportation.. Great site and interesting structure some are crumbling and some are just stunting to watch them.. Take us to olden era... Artistic expression
