  • We visited during a rainy and cold day, however the ruins didn't disappoint. The lady in the office was accommodating and very helpful.  more »
  • At this time of year the ruins were only open to the public on the weekend. I spent about an hour viewing this site. So much history. Nice little gift shop. Toilets available.  more »
  • Peaceful site, with guided audio tour. Benches to sit and chill in attractive gardens. Bring a picnic and a camera. The old Bishops House is now private but you can wander all round the priory.  more »

  • Another great English Heritage site. There is a lot of the ruin to see worth a visit on a sunny day. Not great for those with accessibility needs.
  • English Heritage, with free entry for members. Parking for £1 next door. The audio tour is worth taking, listen to the tale of the unfortunate woman who vomited a large 'wurm' onto the altar.
  • Much Wenlock is a lovely place and the Priory is the icing on the cake. Dogs allowed in and nearly car park is only a pound a day
  • Called here on a trip out into the countryside. Nice area, but a bit expensive to enter the priory unless you're a National Trust member!
  • A lovely picturesque ruin with an interesting audio guide that gives you a good back story info the lives of the monks that lived here
