We visited recently and despite dull and damp weather, we enjoyed it. It is quite atmospheric in the rain and there are plenty of information boards around. There is a shop at the entrance where you can purchase gifts, guide books, souvenirs etc.

We visited during the school holidays (last review) and would have expected the site to be busy but on a weekday morning it was only us and one other group visiting. Lovely to walk around this tranquil setting and find out more about the Priory.

One of the priories we visited thanks to our English heritage membership. The audio tour really adds a nice touch to this visit and is well worth taking.

Took an Australian visitor to see "Old England", medieval history. Wonderful old ruins, really get a feel for the place surrounded by pines. Helpful English Heritage staff. Well worth a visit, but agree take audio tour.

A super ruined priory - very picturesque. I would recommend taking the audio tour, as this really brings the ruins to life.

We have moved to Much Wenlock and we have been given English Heritage membership. When we have time and on a nice day we pack up a picnic buy a newspaper, have a wander, soak up the atmosphere and then have our picnic. Idyllic!

This is a very pretty site with large manicured lawns, very straight Scotts pine tress and a large ash tree. The ruins were partly destroyed in the 16th century. However there are fine examples of carving on the remains chapter house wall. Though we have...More

This area is stuffed full of ruined stuff so they have to compete to get visitors. Much Wenlock Priory has clearly been a visitor attraction for a long time as the attractive village of Much Wenlock has several cast iron signs on stone walls pointing...More
