Our decision to visit Lanercost Priory was very much on the spur of the moment & I am glad we did. As there is not just the ruins of the old Monastery to explore, but the 13th Century church is still in use today. I...More

A warm welcome from the lovely volunteer cheered a grey start to our day, the priory is absolutely breathtaking and the church houses some fabulous examples of Burne Jones Stained glass. As a taphophile I was particularly interested in the adjoining cemetery which houses some...More

Found it a really interesting place as I always buy a guidebook to the places I visit. English heritage membership would be an advantage as I wasn't there long but if this kind of stuff interests you then it's well worth a visit.

It's a nice place but the entrance fee covers a very small area and for any info you need to buy the guide book on top of the entrance fee. If you are not English heritage members then it's not worth it. The area around...More

An interesting small detour from the Hadrian's wall walk which is worth making, if you are interested in the archaeology and history of the area. Beautiful area.

Nice ruins to walk around, not much information without forking out for a guidebook (typical of English heritage) but feels almost like a film set. Doesn't take long to get around, but worth visiting if you're in the area.

While visiting a friend up Brampton way, he took us the priory. Part ruins, part still operational. Loads of parking, free to go in the church, but was a £1 each next door as there was an exhibition going on. Artwork by various people, wayyyyy...More

If you are into architecture or history, this is a worthwhile stop! Beautiful landscaping and incredibly well kept history. A great opportunity for unique, eye-catching photography. Every picture will be a conversation piece.

The tearoom has a special area dedicated to dogs! Owners eat at tables and the dogs are supplied with water and bowls for food. I do not own a dog but it was well publicised and seemed very practical for dog owners.

Hi, certainly the area around the shop, cafe and small museum is wheelchair accessible, The only slight difficulty is that the car park is gravel, which I know from experience can cause problems with a wheelchair, but once... More

Yes - both the tea room and the Priory are open on Sundays. The church is still used as the local Parish church with regular services, however visitors are made very welcome if they wish to join in with the service, but... More
