The Abbey of St Mary is a ruined Benedictine abbey in York, England and a Grade I listed building.
Good location, but it is what it is. A ruin.
Best spot in the Museum Gardens for a picnic. Great if with kids
Cool place . Good to stop and enjoy a sunny day in.
It is set in pretty gardens, which are well maintained. City centre location and free.
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.
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.
It is just a wall in a park. A nice wall in a nice park, but nothing spectacular.
Beautiful place to visit and the museum is close by.
Free entrance and beautiful place. What do you wish more?
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.
Pretty ruins in the museum gardens. Nice for a walk in the park.
