Waverley Abbey

Abbey ruins and grounds, gardens and riverside


Waverley Abbey is a lovely place to bring the family for a picnic or walk.  The ruins are really interesting and the views are beautiful


What to wear?


Outdoor clothing and sensible footwear appropriate for the weather.  Ski suits are really good for children when taking part in autumn and winter outdoor activities as they keep the child snug and offer brilliant protection when splashing in puddles :) We have ones similar to this.


There are also some lovely nature areas. Allowing your little ones to go bug hunting under logs and in the leaves.


There are so many trees around the Abbey, why not make a little educational trip. get your little ones a book or worksheet and help them identify the trees you find.
