Lewes Priory

Details

Here, in the 11th century, monks came from Cluny in France to establish the first Cluniac priory in England. The Priory survived for 450 years until the Dissolution of the Monasteries in 1537.

The site with its evocative remains retains an air of tranquility and serenity. The sweep of the South Downs which frame the site provides a spectacular setting for an afternoon out.

There is much to see at Priory Park. Impressive interpretation panels allow you to walk in the footsteps of medieval monks and imagine how the buildings once looked. A recreated herb garden grows plants that monks would have used for medicinal, culinary and ceremonial purposes.

Opening details

The Park is open throughout the year. Please see website for further details.
