Apart from the priory remains you get the house, brilliant gardens, easy parking and a bright modern tearoom. The monks cells have been imaginatively reconstructed and are full of interest. Allow 2 hrs.

The best preserved example of a Carthusian monastery (Chaterhouse) in England. Extensive remains with reconstructed cell. The visitor centre is housed in what became a post Reformation house in the Arts & Crafts style. Some William Morris wall coverings have been revealed. There is also...More

A really interesting place to visit. The former priory guest house, the priory itself and the gardens are all interesting. The restored monk's cell gave a good insight into the daily life at the priory. The grounds are well kept and nice to walk round...More

Last August my son and I walked Alfred Wainwright’s Coast to Coast route. The day after we’d walked 23 miles across the Vale of Mowbray and finished the day with a death defying hobble across 4 lanes of the A19, we found ourselves climbing into...More

Lovely priory to walk around, especially if a sunny day! Gardens are nice too, and unusual compared to other Abbeys etc well worth a visit

Really interesting place to visit. House, Priory and gardens well kept. Information boards useful. Coffee and cake yummy. Be careful though, getting back onto the A19 can be scary. No slip road and you join a dual carriageway just around a bend. Don't dilly dally.
