Walsingham Abbey Grounds & Museum


Splendid grounds seasonally blanketed with snowdrops make for excellent family rambling, plus a hands on museum and a spooky old prison to explore.

The grounds of Walsingham Abbey are famous for the spectacular ruins of the mediaeval Priory and place of pilgrimage, together with an unrivalled display of massed snowdrops in February. Visitors today can enjoy the tranquil atmosphere surrounding the Priory ruins, wildflower meadows, almost 20 acres of woodland carpeted with snowdrops in season, or romantically green in summer, and river walks alongside the Stiffkey.

The local Guided Tour of Walsingham covers all the places of interest and introduces visitors to this fascinating village, one of the most famous places in England during medieval times: a place of pilgrimage since 1061 and a market town and legal centre during the 18th and 19th centuries.
