“A beautiful place out in the country”
Review of Binham Priory

Binham Priory
Reviewed 28 June 2018

This building is a beautiful and peaceful place out in the country. Once a priory and now a parish church, yet the monastic feel to the building is still present. Visited as a tourist but I would still like to attend a service.

Binham priory is dog friendly and interesting. We spent time walking around the ruins before going into the church. Lots of information boards about and things to see. We walked into the village to look around and had lunch at the pub. Next to the priory is a farm shop selling cheese, butter, milk and hot drinks.

Priory ruins great to investigate with information boards set around. The church once part of the prory is in use and usually open. Disabled toilets inside clean and modern. Dogs welcome around the ruins. Cafe selling rawmilk, cheese coffees and teas, but all by machines, no personal service. Pleasant 1-2hours spent here.

The history of Binham Priory is amazing - we were lucky enough to have Robin to guide us round and give us a truly wonderful account of the Priorys history - and the building is stunning! Thank you!

Yet another example of an abbey trashed by Henry VIII's takeover of church properties. The ruins are well explained and you can imagine the place in its heyday. The core church was preserved, though windows had to be bricked up to keep it from falling down. The inside of the church is worth visiting and you will appreciate the small modern entrance with a few museum exhibits and toilets, which fits in well. Adjacent is a farm shop, a marvel of modern technology, no staff, but with vending machines for raw milk, cheese, butter, and coffee.
