What's on

Norton Priory
Museum & Gardens Norton Priory is a great place for a family day out come rain or shine. With over 40 acres of garden and woodland set among the archaeological remains of the Priory, and plenty of indoor activities. 

 

Pick up our Family Guide Book at museum reception or find your own way around with free trails and quizzes. 

 

Follow the sculpture trail and explore the hidden pathways in the woods. Borrow binoculars to see what wildlife you can spot or run wild in the wildflower meadows. 

 

Explore the past through hands-on activities in the museum including dressing up. Or get creative in the children's craft area and add to the changing seasonal displays. 

 

Family activity workshops every Monday and Tuesday during school holidays. Always fun, always a bit different, and always someone else clearing up the mess!  

Join the Wildlife Discovery Club to learn more about the wildlife on site through fun interactive sessions with the Ranger.
