Wilmington Priory, East Sussex

Wilmington Priory was a cell of the Benedictine Abbey at Grestain in Normandy and dates back to 1215. The priory has been added to and altered in every way, some of which has been lost to ruin and decay. What remains shows how prestigious the priory once was.

*We are sorry but we’ve had to suspend these visiting arrangements during the Covid-19 pandemic in order to keep our staff safe. We’ll reinstate them as soon as things get back to normal.*

The grounds, porch, crypt and ruins are open for 30 days between April and October. Please contact the Booking Office for dates.
