Tintern at first glance may not seem much, but its extensive history makes it a wonder of Wales. A village on the banks of the renowned River Wye and close to the English border, Tintern is popular with tourists because of its breath-taking scenery and iconic Tintern Abbey. The abbey was erected in 1131 by Walter de Clare during the reign of King Henry I. The monks who lived here originated from France, and the abbey itself was the second Cistercian foundation in Britain. Before this, the ford, located close to the abbey, was utilised by the Romans. When the Romans retreated from the country, the Kingdom of Gwent emerged in Tintern where a battle between one of its kings and the Saxons commenced when the Saxons invaded. Fast-forward to medieval times, and Tintern was a hub for industrial activity, producing brass, iron and wire works.
By the late 18th century, tourism was booming in Wye Valley as travellers came from all corners of Britain to take in the sights of the area. Even famous wordsmith William Wordsworth stayed in a cottage close to Tintern Abbey. The tourism boom could also be accredited to the arrival of the Wye Valley Railway that allowed these areas to be easily accessible.
Even to this day, the charm of Tintern draws tourists in. Modern-day Tintern sees a mixture of architecture stemming over several centuries. The gorgeous walking trails around the area are a must for visitors, as is the water mill where a visitor’s centre provides you with all the information you need - and not to mention the award-winning vineyard located in the village!
