Nearly a millennium ago, Norton Priory was home to a community of Augustinian canons, whose purpose was to centre their lives on God. Today, Norton Priory is a unique and enthralling place to escape from modern life. The multi-award winning site is an historical gem and a haven for wildlife. Friendly and helpful staff will help you to discover the 38 acres of beautiful and peaceful gardens and the fascinating museum galleries.
