The Abbey Ruins

The Abbey Ruins are accessible for wheelchair users and those with mobility issues via a sloping footpath from the Forbury Gardens or from Chestnut Walk. Please note there is step free access but no hand rail.

You will find an accessible public toilet in the Forbury Gardens, in the Abbey Quarter.

All dogs are welcome in the Abbey Ruins.

The Abbey Gateway

The Abbey Gateway is only available for organised visits. The Gateway has no step-free access and there are uneven steps and floors because this is a Grade I Listed Monument. Buggies and pushchairs can be stored on the ground floor if you are taking part in an activity.
