Norton Priory Museum & Gardens
Norton Priory is the most excavated monastic site in Europe. The 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. Visitors can explore the 12th century undercroft building and priory ruins, or venture further into the surrounding woodland to discover secret summer houses and stream glades.
The beautiful 2.5 acre Georgian walled garden is a hidden gem with fruit tree, herb garden and rose walk. Home to the National Collection of Quince, it is surrounded by a pear orchard, wildflower meadow and woodland.
Please not that the Walled Garden is open 12pm - 4pm, April to October, and is closed from November through March.
Open Daily, April - October: 10am - 5pm
Open Daily, November - March: 11am - 4pm (Walled Garden Closed)
