Gloucestershire Places to Visit Historic - Hailes Abbey

Ruins of a Cistercian abbey, dating back to 1246. It is once a popular site of pilgrimage, due to it allegedly being the custodian of a phial of Christ's blood. An audio tour and information panels tell the story of the abbey and the monks and lay brothers who once lived there. Sculptures, stonework and other finds from the site are in the museum. No café, but refreshments are available in the shop. Picnics welcome in grounds. Don't forget to visit the adjacent parish church, which has medieval wall paintings. Seasonal opening times. English Heritage property.
