Given that we were there with our 4 year old granddaughter, our favourite part of our visit on 1st August 2022, was the hunt for the mouse who had been eating all the Norton cheese. This story trail, through the Norton woodland was led by Ranger Paul who delivered the make believe tale in a, totally, engaging & inclusive way. The craft activity prior to starting the trail was perfect for preschoolers. After the trail, we enjoyed a, reasonably priced, light lunch in the Brooke Cafe prior to starting the Fairy Door Trail….. this was brilliant for introducing the different species of trees to our 4 year old….. it focused her to look and compare the shape of leaves. You may assume the museum and gallery displays were more than she could understand, but, not at all; so many interactive items that fed into her natural curiosity and kept her engaged. The Walled garden, we didn’t get to explore thoroughly since, after exploring the woodlands to find climbing frames and music makers, we were worn out. But, we did just take a look at the pigs that the lady on reception suggested were only too happy to give free piggy backs!!…. A proper appreciation of those gardens and orchards will be pencilled in for another day. All-in-all, 6 hours well spent.

The last time I went, the exhibition centre wasn't built. Such a different experience going today with my husband and son. From the moment we walked in, we were greeted by a lovely receptionist who was extremely knowledgeable about the museum and gardens. She was wonderful with our little boy and told him all about the attractions for children. The priory was excellently maintained and the woodland walk was beautiful. Our son loved finding the fairy doors and playing with the musical instruments. The cafe was great with excellent gluten free options for my husband. The museum staff were really friendly and it was great speaking with Emily who was extremely enthusiastic about the exhibitions. When we went to the walled gardens we were greeted again by a warm members of staff. The gardens are absolutely stunning and our son loved the wendy house. We were there for 4 hours in total with a three year old! So definitely excellent value for money. The gift shop was very reasonably priced in comparison to other places for families which we don't normally buy from. Highly recommended for families.

Have visited a few times before, this time wasn't the best as I felt that some bits had been changed and there was less info. in general, plus where has the large bell gone? Loved the walled garden as it was in full bloom. It's still well worth the visit though as it's very unique, might try a theatre performance later this month.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review - it's very much appreciated. If there are some areas you feel we could improve on, please do let us know. We're always keen to make improvements to the site. I'm pleased to say that the large bell is still very much in situ! Leave the visitor centre via the glass door at the back of the atrium, and follow the path: the bell is just past the Georgian loggia (or summerhouse) on your left hand side. Hope to see you at one of our theatre shows and thanks again for taking the time to leave a review!

My daughter and I had a great afternoon visiting the Priory. The museum was modern, well curated and interesting for adults and children alike. The staff were all friendly and informative. The remains and grounds are well preserved and managed. The walled gardens in summer bloom are spectacular and a real hidden gem. Highly recommended!

A great history lesson covering medieval period through to the time between the two world wars. In addition the walled garden is a superb place to wander through and imagine what can be created in one’s own home.
A truly great afternoon was spent by my wife and me.
This historic location needs greater advertising & exposure to the public.
A real gem hidden away - go visit; you will not be disappointed!

We had a lovely visit today, it was our first time. We have a 3 year old daughter and dog.
We called in advance to check if dog friendly and the lady was really helpful.
Upon arrival we had a really friendly welcome by two of the lovely staff, they were great with our daughter and dog, kindly explaining all of the exciting things my daughter would be able to find in the gardens.

We had a great walk, it was so exciting for our daughter, the mud kitchen, outdoor instruments and the bell in particular.
There are plenty of places to enjoy a picnic including picnic benches if you didn’t bring a blanket.
My daughter and I visited the museum and really loved the little step for children to be able to see higher up and take part easily in learning. We loved doing the skeleton and arch puzzles.

Everything was so clean and well presented, I bought a gift for my daughter from the shop, the gifts were sweet.
There is so much history and character, there is lots of exploring to be enjoyed here by everyone.

We only visited the cafe for takeaway drinks but there was lots on offer, friendly and plenty of seating.

We were really glad we visited and will be back again. Highly recommended. Thank you x

We're delighted to hear how much you enjoyed your first visit with us; hopefully we'll see you again before too long. It's wonderful to receive such positive feedback and your daughter may be interested to know that later this year we'll be introducing an additional feature to the new children's garden within the Walled Garden to help some of our youngest visitors enjoy their time with us even more. Keep an eye on our social media channels for more details (or ask us when you are next in)! Thank you for taking the time to leave a review, as it is much appreciated.

It's £10 entrance fee and well worth it. You could spend a day exploring the woods, and the museum has been created so intuitively I don't have enough superlatives! And to top it off we had a proper oven baked jacket potato with beans and a lovely large salad for me, and home made soup and bread for Peter at less than £8! I would recommend it to anyone

Just off the M56 Jct 11, a really interesting historical and archaeological site, with lovely walks and beautiful gardens too. Further excavations are ongoing. The cafe serves lovely lunches, cakes and ice creams at very reasonable prices. Not easy to see everything in one day, so a further visit is definitely on the cards.

Only a stone's throw from exit 11 on the M56, Norton Priory is a fascinating place to visit . A recently built visitor centre and state of the art museum displays artifacts excavated on this ancient site dating back to the 12th century. There is also The undercroft remains but as with most pre Reformation religious houses only the foundations of the rest of the buildings show above ground. There are woodland walks and a splendid walled garden to extend your visit and the cafe offers good quality food at very reasonable prices. It was my first visit but will not be my last. Norton Priory deserves to be much better known.

Thank you for taking the time to review Norton Priory, it is very much appreciated. We're delighted that you enjoyed exploring our site and the cafe team will be thrilled to know you enjoyed the food as well. Our Head Gardener is responsible for caring for the Walled Garden, which hosts an array of unusual plants, including a kiwi plant. We also have the National Collection of Tree Quince on site. We look forward to welcoming you back: our Quince and Apple Festival in October is well worth a visit (check our website or Facebook page for details of forthcoming events!).
