Well, as well as visiting the Abbey and the town itself we also went to see the Castle.
There are actually 2 - the oldest of which is a ruin, which we looked at from a distance (!) ... whereas the other, built by Sir Walter Raleigh, is still lived in today.
We were not allowed indoor pictures - but it is a truly stunning building. One item they do also have is the pipe that Sir Walter was reputedly smoking when he walked up to the scaffold to be be-headed.
