The small, level tarmac car park has two accessible bays.
Approach to site
The visitor centre is 100m from the car park along a path paved with concrete slabs. It is mainly on the level with a slight incline near a gate.
A 130m-long level concrete path leads from the visitor centre to the monument. There is a short section of gravel where the gradient is steeper than 1:10.
The ticket office has step-free access. The exit is down a slightly sloping concrete ramp with a handrail on one side.
The abbey nave and transepts have a short grass surface, which is firmer in dry weather. There are also areas of stone paving slabs.
There is a step-free, 100m-long, gravel path around the site to the gatehouse and refectory (both of which are also surfaced in gravel).
A flight of 10 uneven stone steps (no handrail) leads from the nave down into the cloister. An alternative route from the refectory up into the cloister has 12 steps with a handrail on one side.
The chapter house in the cloister is down a single historic stone step and 10 modern timber steps with handrails on both sides.
