Torchlight Tour of Tintern Abbey
which Coleridge and his party took in 1795

Led by Dr David Robinson, author of the Tintern Abbey Guidebook, architectural historian with a particular interest in the buildings of the Middle Ages and in the people connected with these sometimes iconic structures. He has published many books and articles on the built heritage of Wales. (formerly with Cadw and English Heritage)

In the late 18th century it was popular for tourists to visit the Abbey by moonlight, and by torchlight, intensifying the experience of visiting the gothic ruins. Find out more about what they were seeking…



Organised by Chepstow Museum in association with Cadw in response to the Coleridge in Wales festival
