There is much to see at Priory Park. Walk in the footsteps of medieval monks and imagine how the buildings once looked with the aid of our interpretation panels. A herb garden grows plants that monks would have used for medicinal, culinary and ceremonial purposes. The South Downs frame the site; providing a spectacular setting.

  • This is a pleasant park on the site of Lewes Priory; one of the places dismantled by Thomas Cromhall on the orders of Henry VIII during the Reformation. There remains quite a large part of the ruins remaining of what was quite an extensivesite and guides have been installed to help get everything in perspective. Not as complete as Lewes Castle but still worth the visit,
