The Abbey of St Mary is a ruined Benedictine abbey in York, England and a scheduled monument.
Once one of the most prosperous abbeys in Northern England, its remains lie in what are now the York Museum Gardens, on a steeply-sloping site to the west of York Minster.

Pretty ruins in the museum gardens. Nice for a walk in the park.

These ruins are situated within the beautiful museum gardens. They are free to visit and quite picturesque. I found them nearly as beautiful as Inch Abbey.

It is just a wall in a park. A nice wall in a nice park, but nothing spectacular.

St Mary’s Abbey gets five stars from me just for re-inventing itself. It was an 11th century church who is now in ruins; however, it is the place for contemporary art exhibitions and installations. It is also next to the Yorkshire Museum, Museum Gardens, York Observatory and others; so basically in the middle of the main historic and tourist attraction in York.

I was there in the Autumn and the colours of the trees were lovely, combined with the Abbey ruins it was a beautiful place to be.

Good location, but it is what it is. A ruin.
