A great place to visit on a beautiful spring day. Friendly and helpful staff and a seriously good exhibition explaining the Priory’s origins. We struggled with the audio guide but I think that was down to us. Beautiful ruins, which must have been astonishing before...More
On a crisp sunny day the ruins of Castle Acre Priory and the nearby castle are well worth visiting. No cafe so we took picnic and Sat at tables overlooking the buildings. Very atmospheric and beautiful.
A surprisingly large ruin nestled on the outskirts of Castle Acre. We were pleasantly surprised by the quantity of information on offer both in the visitors centre and dotted around the site. There are quite a few rooms to explore and if you look closely,...More
Staying locally, we decided to take a short drive to Castle Acre, it's priory and castle. We could not have been welcomed more to the priory and were shown the tourist centre and purchase an informative guide book before being let loose. The priory itself...More
Castle Acre Priory is really interesting in itself, with a good shop. Couple this with Castle Acre village and the castle you have a great day out! Interesting little shops and good pubs to eat and drink in, what more could you want!
We stopped off here quite by chance while touring Norfolk. What a lovely surprise. Quaint little village with an amazing walk around the castle & priory along the river Nar. We hadn't expected this opportunity to see one of the oldest best preserved monastic buildings...More

So sorry I can't remember if the visitors' centre/entrance has steps. You could ring 0370 333 1181 to check. The (outside) loos are not wheelchair friendly but on the above no you can check if there's an adapted one inside... More
So sorry I can't remember if the visitors' centre/entrance has steps. You could ring 0370 333 1181 to check. The (outside) loos are not wheelchair friendly but on the above no you can check if there's an adapted one inside. The path to the priory is gravelled but the ground around the priory itself is pretty rough. With assistance tho a chair user could get round the main body of the church and the path around the other areas. Some will be hard to reach but you can see outlines of rooms etc from the path and get a good idea of layout . There is a great view of the whole west end and priors house from a reachable shaded picnic area. Wish I could remember more! Nell Scotland West
