  • A wonderful place to visit. Highly recommend spending an hour or so exploring it's rich history. There's a tea room and gift shop too. They occasionally have musical recitals, which are a real treat considering the amazing acoustics. Make sure you put it top of your 'to do' list if you ever visit Christchurch, you won't be disappointed.
  • Finally found the car park (you'll need to interpret the signs,). Priory beautiful and a marvel of it's time. Photography, including flash, is allowed. Well stocked shop with friendly staff. Well worth a visit.
