Review of Buckfast Abbey
Posted on by Jacqueline MooreType of travel: Family
A lovely peaceful place to pray and wander in the herb garden, also three good shops, a very good book shop that has secular books as well as religious items, the gift shop stocks many local items and the monastic gift shop has many items from Abbeys around Europe.
