Situated within the park are three notable buildings: Margam Abbey, a Cistercians monastery; Margam Castle, a neo-Gothic country house and the 18th-century Orangery.

The village of Tintern is the stunning home to the spectacular ruins of a world famous Cistercian abbey and to an ancient industrial heritage. The Cistercian abbey of Tintern is one of the greatest monastic ruins of Wales. It was only the second Cistercian foundation in Britain, and the first in Wales, and was founded on 9 May 1131 by Walter de Clare, lord of Chepstow. The remains consist of nave, chancel, tower, chapel and cloister. It was partly converted into living quarters after 1541, and further adapted over the centuries. The Abbey was occupied by the Colclough family from the 16th century until 1960s.

What to See in Cardiff, Wales

What to See in Cardiff, Wales

Share/Bookmark

Cardiff is a city of attractions, sport, culture and entertainment. Within the few square miles of the city-centre alone, you’ll find a wealth of things to do. Dominating the city centre is Cardiff Castle, a remarkable site with a history that spans over 2000 years. The Bute Park is a large park at the river Taff and directly next to the castle. It’s named after the Bute family, whose gardener Andrew Pettigrew created the layout of the park. In Cardiff Bay the Wales Millennium Centre stands next to the Grade 1 listed Pierhead building. The Norwegian Church, where children’s author Roald Dahl was christened, is now an arts centre and cafe with a Nordic flavour. The Millenium Stadium mainly is a rugby stadion, but of course other matches and events take place there too.
