Lots of information about the history of the Abbey going back to 1200. The connections with William Wallace and other Royals makes it worth the visit to learn about the history.

We visited the Abbey on Doors Open Day and the place really is breath-taking. I'm embarassed that I've lived for so long in Paisley and never visited. If you're in the town for a visit, it's definitely worth going in for a look around.

I took advantage of the "open doors" day this week. I loved wandering round this beautiful old abbey. Steeped in history and plenty of people on hand to help with the tour. Well worth a visit if your in the area.

Well done Paisley Abbey for yet another great open doors day. The information given by all the volunteers was very interesting. Thanks to the ladies in the cafe, we had great coffee, home baking and chat. Well done to all.

I thought I would pop in for about 20 minutes, but after more than an hour I was still entralled by the masses of information available on the important role this Abbey played in UK history.
