Llanthony Priory, Llanthony

  • slide

Llanthony Priory had long been a site for religion when the current building was started in the 12th Century. In its time it was one of the great medieval buildings in Wales and plenty remains for us to see what it must have been like in its prime.

Access is easy along the lanes from Abergavenny or Crickhowell and you will be rewarded not only by the beauty of the Priory and its surroundings, but also the chance to eat and drink and even stay overnight at the Abbey Hotel, which is situated in the crypt.
