A very pleasant and easily accessed priory with a very interesting history, as well as being a living part of this thriving community.

We love coming to the Lake District and often visit Cartmel Priory. The stained glass windows are lovely, and the internal tombs, statues, and carvings are fascinating. Light a candle for those lost, and buy something beautiful from the gift shop. Well worth a visit.

A must do for all visitors to the Lake District and to Cartmel in particular. The history in the gravestones alone will keep people interested for hours.

Wonderful old building, beautiful interior and a lovely place to sit quiet and contemplate or just sit and look at the marvellous stained glass windows. Good shop for small purchases.

Spent one day in Cartmel and popped in to the priory. A well looked after place with friendly staff. Worth a visit.

Just delightful ancient church - extraordinary in size and importance for such a tiny village. How times must have changed! Well worth a visit.

Only had a brief visit to the priory, but this is one place I will be returning to. There is also a small book/gift shop that had some nice (not tacky) items for sale.

This attraction is brimming with historical interest and well worth a visit. Although Parking can be a challenge, don't be put off by this.
