Norton Priory Museum & Gardens
Discover 900 years of history through an award winning museum, a spectacular 14th century Saint Christopher statue and excavated medieval ruins set in acres of managed woodland. Open throughout the year.
The stunning 18th century Walled Garden offers orchards, a fruit garden and a beautiful rose walk, open from the beginning of April to the end of October.
We also have a wide ranging events programme, with activities for visitors of all ages! There are also lectures, tours and courses in traditional crafts so there is always something happening at Norton Priory.
The Trust also manages Halton castle which is open at weekends from April through October.
Please note - we are closed today (31st March) due to high winds. We apologise for any inconvenience caused
The museum has now closed for the redevelopment project but the Walled Garden reopens early on 1st March with new events and activities all year around!
Norton Priory has been awarded £3.7m from the Heritage Lottery Fund! The grant will restore the undercroft and redevelop the museum but don't worry, there's still plenty of things to see and do at the Walled Garden!

It marks the start of the exciting redevelopment project that will see the transformation of the museum as a result of a £3.7million grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund. The associated conservation programme in the undercroft will see it reinstated to its former glory with the tiled floor stabilised, levelled and entirely restored.
