Review of Priory Ruins

Reviewed 25 November 2013

The Priory ruins are in a lovely peaceful park. The ruins are substantial and give a tiny hint at the vastness of the original buildings, and variety of people who lived and worked there. The site is very well kept with good information boards. No toilets unfortunately (apart from the ones the 11th Century monks used, which are not recommended on a chilly day(.

This is a wonderful place to visit, albeit a harsh reminder of how the vicious Henry VIII destroyed so much that was beautiful and spiritual. Lewes council has provided useful information boards but is largely hands-off. This means you can wander unhindered and try to imagine how the priory operated all those centuries ago. Very atmospheric and fascinating.

The priory in Lewes has undergone a complete renovation and the setting and the picture boards and the whole site are all so interesting and informative, you should not miss it.

Although there isn't too much of the priory left to see, there are good information boards which give you a good feel for the place. It's steeped in history and is a good way to spend half an hour
