Overview

One of the four border abbeys, Jedburgh Abbey was founded by David I in around 1138 for Augustinian canons. Explore the fascinating Jedburgh Abbey along with its visitor centre and surrounding herb garden with aromatic plants and a stone display at the west end. The church was built in the Romanesque and early Gothic styles and is remarkably complete. Jedburgh Abbey’s close location to the English border meant it was frequently targeted by invading border armies. Remains of the cloister buildings have been uncovered and finds from the excavations, including the 12th century 'Jedburgh comb' and an eighth century shrine are on display.

We really enjoyed our visit to Jedburgh Abbey. Entrance fee £6 or £4.80 concessions. We were lucky to have a Guided Tour of the garden - the volunteer was very knowledgeable and friendly. The free audio guide was great too!

Myself, my fiancé and his mum and her husband all visited the Abbey today. We are all fascinated with the fact that Jedburgh is such a small town but has such a lot of history. The grounds and architecture of Jedburgh Abbey are absolutely stunning....More

I so wish we had had time to visit the interior of the ruins...the outside looks so spectacular, and the surrounding area, the little creek next door, were lovely.

We visited all of the Abbeys in the area and found them to be very interesting but very different. If you visit all 4 you get an idea of what a complete abbey would have looked like.

There's a few old abbey ruins in the area, and each have their own character. Jedburgh, built on a hillside, is substantial, with much of the abbey church still standing. It has a great history, and offers a really good insight into monastic life centuries...More

Good to visit if one is interested in history & time to relax, as the Abbey is only a big ruin. The area surrounding is nice with a big car park & a lovely river. There is also a lovely little cafe close by if...More

Majestic, tall substantial ruins. Car park across the bridge. Little coffee shop there. Sit on the benched next to the river and have your lunch or whatever. Relaxing. Have a wander around the ruins. I found it interesting worthwhile.

Definitely, we took ours with us all over Jedburgh and he thoroughly enjoyed roaming around the abbey, Jedburgh is a very pet friendly place we found. A lot of the cafes let dogs in too which was good.

The Abbey is in the centre of the town near some lovely cafes and shops. It is an easy walk to get there. If coming from outskirts public transport will be available.
