We visited here as well as visiting the Farmland Museum and we were pleased we did. The Abbey itself is an interesting visit, lots of history to look at and read about. The Fenland Cottage is the highlight though. This wonderful little home is frozen in time and brought back lots of memories for both me and hubby. A very... 更多
Fantastic. Full of history, good value, a must see. The cottage "stuck in time" was eerily fascinating and the abbey was beautiful. I learned so much about the area I grew up in. More people should come here, before they have to close due to lack of business !
The farmland museum is charged separately although you seem to have to go through it to reach the Abbey, quite interesting with different buildings for blacksmith, shop etc with narrative as you enter each one. The Abbey has a time line showing its different uses over the years There is a cafeteria but this was closed when we were there.... 更多
Spent an interesting afternoon at this magnificent abbey so much history surrounds this site, we were lucky to have a very informative guide (dressed up as a nun) who brought everything back to life with her detailed information enought to keep young and old interested throughout the tour and not boring. Easy to park with a nice coffee shop which... 更多
A trip we have said we should make every time we drive past the entrance on our way home from our sons' house. We found it very interesting and the information available gave a good insight into the various stages of the property throughout history. The farmland museum attached to the property is worth a visit but the entrance fee... 更多
Interestingly deconstructed from its history as a farmhouse Denny Abbey reveals many periods of its history and the surrounding Cambridgeshire countryside. It is fascinating to see and read about the many changes to this building and its use through the ages. There is a small bookshop with an honesty box where you can pick up a bargain to read. Few... 更多
Found this by accident. It's part of English Heritage. The farm museum is very well laid out and interesting. The abbey is accessible. There was no café and the toilets had no water the day we went so I cannot rate it higher. Reasonable price entry fee.
We were driving to Cambridge (and are members of English Heritage which is responsible for the Abbey) so we stopped to take a quick look. There is not a lot to see, but what there is is well documented and laid out. It was the home of 3 different religious orders, although little of the original abbey remains. The second... 更多
The abbey is very large but has been changed so much over the years that part of it has relatively modern windows which look quite odd in such an old building. It's well worth a visit but is very different to any other abbey we've visited.
194's weekend first time visit, great fun lots of people dressed for the date, Home guard.ARP Warden Royal Navy, a whole camp of GIs, and their vehicles. Loved it and the 2 young ladies in the shop, great. Songs of the era, butter making great day nice small place so not Hugh crowds, will go next year in costume.
