Worth a look if you are in the area. Only one end of the Priory remains standing but the information boards and guides give more about the history of this site. Entry is free with the option to donate if you wish.

Me and my little boy love it, the open space to run around and play is great plus pretending to be different characters around the ruins

Not a vast area to look over but the end wall of the priory is quite spectacular. An interesting place to spend an hour (if that) to look over the ruin.

Yes, and in 2017 it's open Bank Holiday Mondays too. It's free. More details on the Gisborough Priory Project website. And yes, that's correct, when you talk about the Priory, there's no "u" in Gisborough!
