Hotels near the Kirkstall Abbey
Kirkstall Abbey in Leeds is one of Britain's best preserved abbeys. Built between 1152 and 1182 on the northern bank of the River Aire, the Abbey was originally home to a community of Cistercian monks and lay brothers.
Among its many attractions are the peaceful cloisters, which offer a tranquil haven away from the bustle of the city. Visitors can sit under covered walkways where the monks once sat in quiet contemplation.
