Discover 900 Years of History

Visit the new Norton Priory museum, now displaying many of the medieval and later objects discovered on site during archaeological excavations. Visitors can explore the medieval undercroft 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 trees, herb garden and rose walk. Home to the National Collection of Quince, it is surrounded by a pear orchard, wildflower meadow and woodland. Norton Priory is the perfect choice for a family day out. The walled and woodland gardens provide a safe space for kids to run around and there is always something new to enjoy with trails and hands-on activities.
