Kirkham Priory

About

Following the latest government recommendations we will be closed.

England’s past is full of stories of hope in the face of adversity, and of people coming together to overcome all kinds of challenges. Although we won’t be able to share those stories with you in person over the coming weeks, we’ll continue to share them on our social media.

The riverside ruins of an Augustinan Priory, picturesquely set in the beautiful Derwent valley near the Yorkshire Wolds. Features include a gatehouse bedecked with the heraldry of the De Roos family of Helmsley Castle, and a handspme set of monastic washbasins. On-site interpretation includes the story of Winston Churchill's secret visit, and Kirkham's role in preparations for D-Day during World War II.

Family friendly resources and activities.
