  • Fantastic and interesting place to visit for couples or familys. Friendly helpful staff and part if English Heritage. Lovely grounds as well as a reasonably priced cafe.
  • Something for all the family! History, exploration, activities, beautiful environment and Priory brewed beers to enjoy with quality food. Staff friendly and helpful. National Lottery funds well spent!
  • Lovely place, and very interesting you could spend a couple of hours here and finish off with A nice coffee and cake
  • OH MY GOD GO TO THE GARDENS HERE. Don't ask questions. Just do it. There were bees, and quince and it was summer, and everything was lovely.
  • Wish we had more time here, the gardens are superb; we explored the museum and were impressed with the history and discovery; the gardens are beautiful (don't miss the secret walled garden!) and well kept. Will definitely back with a picnic for a longer visit soon!
