"Torre Abbey Mansion" Torre Abbey Tip by kooka3

Torre Abbey, Torquay: 10 reviews and 25 photos

This is one of the best historic buildings in the area. You can look through the family chapel, the gardens, and the best preserved meieval abbey ruins in the southwest part of England -- it started as a Premonstratensian Canon monestary. Founded in 1186, this place lets you trace over 800 years of developmetn ranging from the mediveal monestary up to the Mayor's modern day residence. The art gallery is worth some time, too - it doesn't just have paints but pottery and other pieces of art.
