Wonderful Norman church, well worth a visit. Wander around at your own pace. Friendly guides will answer questions about the history of the church. There is a small gift shop and cafe that servers tasty cakes.

Have been to the Priory several times before. Whether you have just 15 minutes or all day it is well worth a visit. Sometimes there are choirs, sometimes orchestras, sometimes just very helpful people. Always different, always great

Spent a lovely two hours listening to the Bournemouth Bach choir doing their rehearsal for the night’s concert. Very helpful staff by the door. The depiction of Christ in the chancel was stunning, see photo.
