Hailes Abbey is to be found nestling in the beautiful Cotswold countryside. Built in the 13th century by Richard, Earl of Cornwall, Hailes became famous when presented with a phial that was said to contain the blood of Christ.

The 'Holy blood of Hailes' attracted pilgrims from far and wide to the magnificent Cistercian Abbey until the 16th century. Today an excellent audio tour brings the story of Hailes to life. The museum displays sculpture and other finds from the Abbey.
