Norton Priory Museum Trust holds the safety and wellbeing of our visitors, volunteers and staff as paramount. With rising concern about COVID-19 (Coronavirus), we want to offer our visitors some reassurance that we are taking steps to help reduce risk and follow the latest government advice.

Following advice from the government, Norton Priory Museum and Gardens will be closed from Sunday 22nd March 2020 due to the developing situation with COVID-19 (coronavirus).  This temporary closure has been implemented to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all our visitors, volunteers and staff.

We can’t yet say when Norton Priory will reopen, but be assured that we will be open again as soon as it is safe for us to do so. The site will be monitored for security reasons.

In the meantime, thank you to all our visitors for your support, it means so much to all the team here.  You can stay in touch with us via our website and social media accounts, where we also share updates.
