About

The grounds and interior spaces at Kirkham Priory are open.

Measures are still in place to keep everyone safe.

We've made a number of changes to help keep you safe. Although things might be a little different when you visit, you’ll still be able to enjoy exploring the places where history really happened. And you’ll still be given a warm and safe welcome by our friendly – if socially distant – staff and volunteers.

Face coverings must be worn in all indoor areas. We won't be able to provide you with a face covering, so please come prepared so you don't miss out.

Our shop is open but all other indoor areas remain closed, and safety measures are in place to keep everyone safe.

Please keep in mind the government’s latest advice on travelling. Find out more below.

The riverside ruins of an Augustinan Priory are 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 handsome 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.
