Stunning ruin well worth a visit. Grounds very peaceful and pretty. The hedges were cool and the flowers in bloom gave a nice setting . Good information boards dotted about.

Much Wenlock Priory is a a beautiful place to visit. Rich in history and sacred atmosphere. If you are interested in early medieval carving do visit, a lot of similarities to the Herefordshire School of Romanesque carving. Take a big memory card for your camera,...More

I think as an heritage centre we were too early to view in March. Opens 1st April? We did catch a glimpse though from the road. Much Wenlock is a lovely historic town and reinvented the Olympics. There is a trail you can follow.

We visited during a rainy and cold day, however the ruins didn't disappoint. The lady in the office was accommodating and very helpful.

At this time of year the ruins were only open to the public on the weekend. I spent about an hour viewing this site. So much history. Nice little gift shop. Toilets available.

Peaceful site, with guided audio tour. Benches to sit and chill in attractive gardens. Bring a picnic and a camera. The old Bishops House is now private but you can wander all round the priory.

We visited recently and despite dull and damp weather, we enjoyed it. It is quite atmospheric in the rain and there are plenty of information boards around. There is a shop at the entrance where you can purchase gifts, guide books, souvenirs etc.

We visited during the school holidays (last review) and would have expected the site to be busy but on a weekday morning it was only us and one other group visiting. Lovely to walk around this tranquil setting and find out more about the Priory.

If you’re interested in historical ruins this is a must. Impressive ruins in such a beautiful and tranquil setting. Such a peaceful atmosphere to sit on one of the benches scattered about and feel the calm. There are some amazing bushes trimmed into various animal...More
