Jedburgh Abbey

Churches, Cathedrals & Abbeys

Abbey Bridgend, Jedburgh, Borders, TD8 6JQ

    One of the four border abbeys, Jedburgh Abbey was founded by David I in around 1138 for Augustinian canons.

    Explore the fascinating Jedburgh Abbey along with its visitor centre and surrounding herb garden with aromatic plants and a stone display at the west end.

    The church was built in the Romanesque and early Gothic styles and is remarkably complete. Jedburgh Abbey’s close location to the English border meant it was frequently targeted by invading border armies.

    Remains of the cloister buildings have been uncovered and finds from the excavations, including the 12th century 'Jedburgh comb' and an eighth century shrine are on display.

    The visitor centre and part of the church through the cemetery are accessible to those using wheelchairs but there are steps to the herb garden and cloisters. Interpretation boards are at a good height and there is a video in the visitor centre. Visitors with disabilities can be set down at the abbey door.

    Very occasionally the property has to close at short notice due to adverse weather conditions or other reasons out with our control. Please check the Historic Scotland closures page for any unexpected site closures You can also follow closure tweets from @welovehistory using #hsclosure.
