  • Perfect place for a visit. You can feel the history in this place. (Ignore the reviews that moan about lack of access - you can't put ramps etc in a precious place of historical interest and heritage)...  more »

  • A beautiful priory with lovely views. Quite a bit to see and read about. Nice little gift shop and the facilities are fine, just set a little bit away from everything. You can also easily walk from the Priory to the Castle the other side of the village and go past the Bailey Gate. There are places to eat in the village too so it'd worth the walk
  • Pleasantly surprised by how well kept the grounds and ruins are and how much of it you can climb around. I really enjoyed a good hour exploring this Norman castle. The surrounding area is worth a walk around too with a lovely tea room nearby.
  • Its nice and quite beautiful location to have picnics and walks with children and very dog friendly 😊
  • very beautiful ruin run by English Heritage recommend also going to the free entry castle just down the road. Also audio tour is very detailed but long winded got bored with it halfway round.
  • A great day out (or at least a few hours) with the children. Even better if you have English Heritage membership as it is free! This is a really well preserved ruin that is fun to explore and it is usually not particularly crowded.
