Mount Grace Priory, House & Gardens

Explore England's most important, best preserved and most accessible of the ten medieval Carthusian houses (charterhouses) in England.


Make a great day out while staying at Middlethorpe Hall to visit Mount Grace Priory, house and gardens. 

While ruins of this 14th century priory, you will be able to see the individual cells reflecting the isolation of the monks who lived as hermits, each occupying his own cell and coming together in the chapel only for the nocturnal liturgical hours, Sundays and feast days. They were a silent order and their diet strictly vegetarian. The Priory is owned by National Trust and operated by English Heritage.

Access to the Priory is via the 13th century Manor House, which contains an exhibition and restored Arts and Crafts rooms.
