Not only was Lanercost a really pretty place, with good information about the priory but the church (active) next door is also worth a visit. The latter is free. The wonderful lady inside showed us the beautiful Burne-Jones stained glass windows and the William Morris...More

Lanercost Priory is in ruins, but you get a very good idea of its size and splendor from the remaining walls and windows on the site. The guide boards you see on the way round try to recreate the look of the priory as it...More

The church has wonderful history including the links to Hadrian's Wall. The ruins evoke the imagination as to what used to be and the grounds are good to stroll around. Even the cemetary at the rear steeped in history and memories is a moving location

Lanercost is a charming place with an impressive, solid edifice. The austerity of the functional church is a good contrast with what your imagination can do with the remains of the medieval Augustinian Priory. It’s fun to find the bits of Hadrian’s Wall that had...More

The tearoom has a special area dedicated to dogs! Owners eat at tables and the dogs are supplied with water and bowls for food. I do not own a dog but it was well publicised and seemed very practical for dog owners.
