If you are an English Heritage member, a no-brainer if you are in the area, along with Buildwas Abbey. One of the better sites for seeing just how big the church really was, and the intact Infirmary (private) gives you an idea of how the buildings would have been at the time it was whole. Not a big site, but... More

By English Heritage standards this is a small site to visit. It had all the facilities of a guide book, to purchase, or audio description. Not a great deal to see but if you are in Much Wenlock it is worth a visit.

Visited this lovely priory on a damp March day but it didn't detract from its beauty. Must have been impressive in its full glory. Recommend the audio tour which is interesting and concise.A stroll round Much Wenlock reveals some interesting buildings too.

Had a lovely visit, was very quiet so spent time looking around and enjoying the peace and tranquility, got some amazing picture despite the rain. The yound lady in the ticket office was lovely and knew a lot about the site. Not sure children would find it that interesting though.

We were just filling time whilst waiting to go for Afternoon Tea when we visited the Priory, but I'm very glad we did. What a fascinating place! Simply beautiful and so peaceful to wander around. Would be lovely in warmer weather to be able to sit with a coffee on the grass and just soak up the atmosphere. The guidebook... More

Previous reviews say this English Heritage place is only open at weekends, but I visited it on a Monday and it was open, though it was school half term. This is a ruin but there is enough of the original and a free headphone guide to help one build a picture of how it would have originally looked. Some quaint... More

Having a keen interest in history, my wife and I planned a visit to Wenlock Priory and Wroxeter Roman City as part of a midweek getaway. We were very disappointed to discover that at this time of year the site is only open at weekends and not at the times during the week that are shown on Trip Advisor. The... More

Much Wenlock Priory is yet another example of the destruction perpetrated during the reign of Henry VIII. The Priory at Much Wenlock gives a clear impression of what the Priory looked like before the destruction took place, there is enough of the original building to form a picture. The way that the local church has been constructed within what was... More

Got here on a Friday. Luckily, the ruins are a short walk from the town centre, although the entrance is a long way down a dead-end road (there is parking here, though). It is only when you get to the entrance that you find that during the winter months, the ruins are only open on weekends. However, managed to catch... More

This priory is a lovely place. Quiet and beautiful location. Good range of old walls easy to see the outline and form of the buildings. Went on a sunny day and enjoyed the experience. It is English heritage. Worth the visit.
