About Dryburgh Abbey

Due to access restrictions in place as a precautionary measure while we undertake high level masonry inspections, there is currently no visitor access to the abbey. The abbey nave and tomb will be accessible from the Friday 24 June and reduced admission will be in place.


The abbey grounds, shop and toilets are open.

Booking in advance is recommended to guarantee entry.

Wander around this remarkably complete medieval ruin by the River Tweed to grasp the appeal of monastic life. You can still see plaster and paintwork inside the chapter house dating from when it was built. Other fine examples of ecclesiastic architecture and masonry also remain – despite three fires and four attacks all but destroying the abbey buildings.
