Free tickets


Wilmington Priory was a cell of the Benedictine Abbey at Grestain in Normandy. It was never a conventional priory with cloister and chapter, the monks prayed in the adjoining parish church where the thousand-year-old yews are testimony to the age of the site. The Priory has been added to and altered in every age and some of it has been lost to ruin and decay, but what is left shows how highly it was once regarded. 

Join us for these free open days to explore the site and learn more about this building's past. We welcome all ages and encourage you to bring a picnic to enjoy in the garden if the weather is fine.

Free admission, leaflets on the building's history and a children's activity sheet will be available. Click here for location
