Beautiful ruins, very well preserved. It was a grey day when we visited, and not many people, so such a luxury to have the place to ourselves. Lots of nooks and crannies to peek into. Cute tea room on site, as well as rooms. This...More

This is a nice ruined priory, with interesting information boards, and a café & shop nearby. Well worth popping into the attached church which has some lovely (pre-Raphaelite) stained glass windows.

Fabulous old Augustinian Abbey, now partly used as a local church. Steeped in history. Well worth a visit.

Spent a lovely afternoon with family at the Tea Rooms. Lovely food and super little gift shop. Staff were very friendly and informative. Would certainly recommend a visit.

It was a sunny cold day and the priory looked beautiful, I snapped some great photos of the interesting building. Only £5 something which is cheaper than other sites along the wall. The tea room and gift shop were also lovely. A nice few hours.

Fascinating place with impressive remaining architecture. The adjoining church is a beautiful working church, very friendly folk who'd just attended a service offered us coffee and biscuits, and the Vicar told us some of the history of the place. Really interesting visit!

The grounds here include centuries-old ruins, a pretty old church, ancient graveyard, very nice gift shop, Hadrian's Wall info, an inn, and a cafe. So, it's all worth a visit. We walked the footpaths also. An intact section of the Wall is 2 miles away....More

What a superb job has been achieved in bringing the last 900 years or so to life with story boards, details and images showing the passage of time, the growth and decline periods and all in a Priory that is still proving regular services in...More

We visited this 12th century monastery in February when the priory was closed (open April to October) but we had a very pleasant time in the cafe and gift shop, there’s also a short walk from the free Carl park to the nearby historic bridge...More

The tearoom has a special area dedicated to dogs! Owners eat at tables and the dogs are supplied with water and bowls for food. I do not own a dog but it was well publicised and seemed very practical for dog owners.
