Beautiful Priory with long and interesting history. Free to enter but suggested donation of £5 per family (you can even donate by credit card). Well worth a walk round outside and inside, the stained glass windows are beautiful.

Visited cartmel on New year's eve and called into the priory to take a look. Wow very impresive and was greeted by a gentleman who was very friendly and informative. Well worth a visit.

The Priory’s History goes back to the year 1189, but there is a lot of interesting history as to how it was damaged and additional parts built. We visited on the day they were starting to put Up Christmas decorations, unfortunately we did not see the final outcome, but I’m sure it would have made the Priory look very ‘Christmasy’.
The architecture and stained glass windows of this medieval building is amazing and well worth the visit.

This is a must if you are in the area. We had a warm welcome from one of the volunteers who was very knowledgeable about the features of interest..and there is an awful lot of interest to see in the church! The design of the tower is also intriguing.
