Historic House / Palace
Cross the moat through the 14th-century gatehouse and enter the seven acres of beautiful gardens which surround this historic house.
Inside the house, furniture and artefacts trace the property’s religious origins and its development over 800 years. There are trails and hands-on activities indoors and out for all the family.
Outside, you can explore the medieval watermill, working forge, rope museum and dramatic Elizabethan Great Barn. Michelham Priory has plenty of free parking, a cafe, new playground and gift shop. There are also regular special events throughout the year.
