Priory Park in Dudley takes its name from the Old Priory of St James's. The ruins are from the Cluniac Priory and are the picturesque feature in the grounds of the park. The Priory was first founded by the Lord of Dudley, Gervase Paganell, in the 12th Century, and was closed by the infamous Henry VIII in the 1530's. The pools near The Priory were drained when Priory Hall was built in 1825. During the 1930's, The Priory were restored to their current form, and the grounds became a park.

Took my granddaughter to the Halloween witches and wizards hat making. All materials were provided and we had a fab time crafting a wizard hat. Lovely clean park and centre.

Lovely walk around the grounds with my children catching Pokemon. Very busy here as lots of Pokemon and pokestop keeping everyone quietly busy on their phones. The gardens are well maintained and great for groups to meet up and play the various sports. Handy toilets in site.

We decided to have a stroll through the park and what a pleasant park it is. There was a wedding party there taking pictures in this scenic park. Will definately visit again.

Super place for wedding beautiful buildings and grounds. After a smooth and well conducted wedding ceremony the garden backdrop made for great photos. A happy day.
