Tucked by the River Thames, the Abbey Gardens and Abbey Meadows are a beautiful and relaxing space available to all. Feed the ducks, stroll through the meadows or enjoy the carefully kept gardens. In addition, amongst this beauty, is the Lost Abbey Trail, an outline of the once great Abingdon Abbey, visited by Henry VIII. It was the fifth richest Abbey at the time of the dissolution by Henry VII.
