Stunning ruin well worth a visit. Grounds very peaceful and pretty. The hedges were cool and the flowers in bloom gave a nice setting . Good information boards dotted about.

I think as an heritage centre we were too early to view in March. Opens 1st April? We did catch a glimpse though from the road. Much Wenlock is a lovely historic town and reinvented the Olympics. There is a trail you can follow.

We visited during a rainy and cold day, however the ruins didn't disappoint. The lady in the office was accommodating and very helpful.

At this time of year the ruins were only open to the public on the weekend. I spent about an hour viewing this site. So much history. Nice little gift shop. Toilets available.

Peaceful site, with guided audio tour. Benches to sit and chill in attractive gardens. Bring a picnic and a camera. The old Bishops House is now private but you can wander all round the priory.
