“Very atmospheric”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

Beautiful spot, well looked after by English Heritage. There's a fair bit left to see and it gives you a strong feeling of what life might have been like there - it must have been stunning in its day. There were very few people there when we visited so it was peaceful. There's an audio tour (free) which was ok. The guide book didn't tell you much more than the audio tour - I'd expected more detail. Overall though very well worth a visit.

“Much Wenlock Priory”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

We went to the priory after visiting the town. It's a magnificent place and the information audio loop gives a good background of what the priory would have been like.

“Tranquil priory”
Reviewed August 25, 2013 via mobile

A beautiful ruined priory, which offered a tranquil and peaceful place to wander around on a summer afternoon. Worth a visit.

“Well worth a visit”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

The Priory at Much Wenlock is an English Heritage site. In such a small town I was expecting a small ruin but was really suprised at the size of the site and how much of the priory is still standing. If you like ancient monuments then add this one to your list. I think the photographs on here will give you a good taste of the attraction.
