Norton Priory Museum & Gardens

The stunning 18th century Walled Garden offers orchards, a fruit garden and a beautiful rose walk, surrounded by woodland and a wildflower meadow.

We also have a wide ranging events programme, with activities for visitors of all ages! There are also lectures, tours and courses in traditional crafts so there is always something happening at Norton Priory.

The Trust also manages Halton castle which is open at weekends from April through October.

Opening hours

The museum and ruins have now closed for the redevelopment project but the Walled Garden and Halton Castle are open with new events and activities all year around!

Norton Priory has been awarded £3.7m from the Heritage Lottery Fund! The grant will restore the undercroft and redevelop the museum but don't worry, there's still plenty of things to see and do at the Walled Garden!

Work starts to save the undercroft tiles

The first Victorian tiles are being lifted from the floor of the medieval undercroft at Norton Priory. It marks the start of the exciting redevelopment project that will see the transformation of the museum as a result of a £3.7million grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund. The associated conservation programme in the undercroft will see it reinstated to its former glory with the tiled floor stabilised, levelled and entirely restored.


Norton Priory is awarded a £3.7m HLF grant!

The Norton Priory Museum Trust has been awarded £3.7m by the Heritage Lottery Fund following its round two application. It's incredible news and with the support of Halton Borough Council, work is scheduled to start in early 2015. Arts Council England and The Wolfson, Foyle and Granada Foundations are also supporting the £4.5m project to conserve the undercroft and redevelop the museum. More information can be found at http://nortonpriory.org/menu/museum/monastery-to-museum-900/
