Mount Grace Priory, House and Gardens, Northallerton

#1 of 11 in Things to do in Northallerton
Mount Grace Priory is the perfect tourist attraction for a relaxing and peaceful day out. Discover how the monks lived 600 years in the reconstructed monk’s cell and herb plot.

The crumbling masonry and open grassland have become home to a collection of wildlife that has taken advantage of what previous owners, including the monks, left behind. The famous priory stoats inhabit the passages under Mount Grace and are possibly the best-known colony of stoats in Yorkshire and even the British Isles.

  • We love Mount Grace Priory! It's perfect for curious kids who want to explore all the nooks and crannies. Lovely gardens, activities for the kids and a good coffee shop.
  • Even with its proximity to the A19 (which makes for a hairy entrance and exit as it is the only way in) this is a very peaceful place. it has two parts; the ruined Carthusian Abbey and the former Priory guest house which was rebuilt to become a large house. A new cafe is being built which is due the early part of 2018. This will enhance the facilities and experience here. This has now been built
