Jedburgh Abbey (HES)

A majestic building founded by David I in 1138. The Abbey church is almost complete. Award winning visitor centre.

The towering ruins of this vast abbey complex are testament to the power of both royalty and the medieval church. Founded by David I in 1138, the abbey was linked to a nearby royal castle. Alexander III married Yonde de Dreux here. You can explore the fine nave, cloisters and herb garden. The abbey museum houses many artefacts including an ivory comb from the 1100s that shows Hercules slaying a dragon. There are also history displays, a virtual tour and dressing-up clothes.
