Additional info

The Museum has displays and hands-on activities to explore the past 900 years since the foundation of the Augustinian Priory in 1134. The walled and woodland gardens provide a safe space for kids to run around, and for the whole family to enjoy the changing seasons together.
During the school holidays we have fun activities for the kids; always fun, always a bit different and always someone else clearing up the mess!
