One of the most peaceful places to visit in the English Lake District is Cartmel’s Medieval priory.
Worship has been at the very heart of Priory life for centuries. Throughout history, people from all around the world have made pilgrimages to the Priory for prayer and worship, each with their own stories to tell. If you look close enough, marks and notches can be found where pilgrims have left their mark for others to discover.
Exploring the Priory will uncover myths, legends and tales of the past, housed in the impressive building that stood all those years ago. If you want to find out more about the centuries of history and heritage that this church is built on, take a look at their History and Architecture pages.
The Priory is open to everyone, and welcomes people from all walks of life
