What to See

Here at Norton Priory we're bursting at the seams with things to see. Spanning 900 years of history, we're the most excavated monastic site in Europe. Our museum opened in August 2016 following a major HLF funded redevelopment project and displays thousands of objects from Tudor shoes to the incredible medieval statue of St Christopher.

We invite you to explore the 12th century undercroft building and priory ruins then venture further into the surrounding woodland to discover secret summer houses and stream glades.

The beautiful 2.5 acre Georgian walled garden is our best kept secret with fruit trees, a herb garden and stunning rose walk to enjoy. Home to the National Collection of Quince, it is surrounded by a pear orchard, wildflower meadow and woodland.

The museum has a visitor car park, café, toilets, including an accessible toilet, baby changing facilities, a lift, and wheelchairs available to borrow.
