Excellent place to visit when in Guisborough. Well maintained by volunteers for English Heritage. Easy access from front of Church. Disc parking available in town centre. Monks walk in the trees is unique

Stopped on a journey. Good place to stretch legs. Various short term free parking spaces further down the hill so didn't have to pay to park. Particularly loved the care volunteers have made to keep the gardens going. Woodland walk and physic garden particularly interesting....More

I went to school opposite the Priory and it dominated views from the classroom. The sight of it therefore brings back fond memories of schooldays, so I may be slightly biased. However, I think anyone would be impressed by this romantic ruin easily and freely...More

The Priory is well worth a visit - not just for the historic buildings but also the wooded walkways and the seasonal flowers (Snowdrops, Daffys etc). Enter through the door off the Church Car Park, and pick up a guide leaflet - its worth reading!

The ruins of the 13th/14th Prior Abbey sprawl across acres of land, all neatly lawned now. A friends group is working steadily to improve the condition and some of the facilities. The ticket office/info centre is small and somewhat limited. Worth a visit if you...More

No entry fees. Great for quiet walk or a picnic on a sunny day. Good views. The Priory is easy to visit as it is situated within this lovely town.

Great views on a sunny day, free entry too. We enjoyed a walk in the gardens and admired the ruins, dahlias and dovecote. The volunteer in the ticket booth was very knowledgable and friendly. Get in touch with your local spiritual history and enjoy this...More

Worth a look if you are in the area. Only one end of the Priory remains standing but the information boards and guides give more about the history of this site. Entry is free with the option to donate if you wish.

Yes, and in 2017 it's open Bank Holiday Mondays too. It's free. More details on the Gisborough Priory Project website. And yes, that's correct, when you talk about the Priory, there's no "u" in Gisborough!
