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.

Lovely site. Free Audio available to guide you around the ruins also giving you the history. £1 to park car, £5.20 per person with gift aid. Well worth a visit.

My wife and I had a relaxing visit to this compact but very interesting E.H. site during our stay in Much Wenlock. The site is very peaceful and the free audio tour very informative.

Very beautiful and tranquil setting for the ruins of what was evidently a great medieval Priory. The ruins are inevitably sparse but what remains is a wonderful echo of its past. Some of the decorative stonework is lovely and a testament to long lost masons and their designs. What brings it all alive is English Heritage's audio guide. Its free,... More
