Opening Times

Gisborough Priory is now closed

Following government and English Heritage advice on coronavirus, Gisborough Priory is closed until further notice to protect both visitors and volunteers.

We are working hard to reopen Gisborough Priory as soon as possible. However we first have to meet government guidelines to ensure the safety of our visitors and volunteers. We look forward to welcoming people back as soon as we can do this safely. Thank you for your support and understanding

Parking: Gisborough’s main car park is 500 metres from the priory. A smaller car park for disabled visitors is 10 metres from the site’s gate. There is a charge for both car parks. A parking disc scheme allows two hours’ free parking on Westgate – discs are available from shops and the library. For coach and minibus parking, please contact Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council.

Access: Limited accessibility for wheelchairs. 

Food and drink: There are plenty of places to eat and drink nearby in Guisborough. Or why not use the picnic area in the woodland gardens?

Toilets: There is a disabled access, composting toilet in the woodland gardens and a portaloo near the priory entrance. Public toilets are available on Northgate, or in Rectory Lane (both around a five minute walk from the priory).

Children: Children aged 16 and under should be supervised by a responsible adult at all times.

Dogs: Well-behaved dogs on leads are welcome.


Gisborough Priory is at the east end of Westgate, the town’s main street, beside St Nicholas Church.
