St Augustine's Abbey Recommended Recommended : Michelin's recommendations

The Abbey was founded in 597 by St Augustin. Some major ruins remain of the large abbey church from the romanesque period that replaced the Saxon buildings. Here you will also find remains of Saxon tombs and, to the east, St Pancras Church, a former Pagan temple that was turned into a church by the Christians. The abbey was dissolved in 1538 and the church destroyed. What remains of the abbey is now occupied by St Augustine's College. The early 14C grand door is very interesting.
