Anglesey Abbey is a former priory about five miles outside of Cambridge. With the closure of the monasteries, the house was robbed of stone and roofing, but was later bought and restored. and it became the estate of the Fairhaven Family. The house and its grounds are now owned by the National Trust.
We have made a few trips to the gardens over the years and usually they provide a variety of beautiful blooms. Some trails in the right season are covered with bluebells and early spring has daffodils. Our most resent visit was a little disappointing as it was post daffodil (mostly wilting heads) and pre-bluebell.
The gardens also have a large number of statues which make for some interesting explorations in their own right. So, despite the seasonal variations on the blooms, the statuary is a constant to enjoy.
The shop and snack bar are in a modern annex near the entrance hall, and most all of the usual National Trust fare and gifts can be found there.
