A very informative experience, you are supplied with a listening device, which provides an excellent narration , whilst you walk around the battlefield. The little museum with a cinema experience was also good. Entry and exit is via the obligatory gift shop. Overall if you...More
Part of the abbey still standing forms the grand frontage leading to an info desk and of course the trinket store.

My wife uses an electric wheelchair although on arrival they suggested that she used their all terrain buggy. She was able to get to the abbey and shop but not the battle site which follows a path through the woods and open land but not suited to disabled as there are steps and slopes involved.
