Opening Times

Gisborough Priory is now open again

From 5th August the site will be open from 10am to 4pm, Wednesday to Sunday, and also on August Bank Holiday Monday (31st August).

We look forward to welcoming everyone.

Note that from 24th September 2020, visitors to Gisborough Priory need to use the NHS track and trace system as part of the government’s plan to help stop the spread of coronavirus. You can download the NHS COVID-19 App here and then scan the QR code on site when you visit. Alternatively, give your details to the custodian on duty.

Please observe social distancing, especially around the narrow entrance gate. You should also read our post on the changes we have introduced to keep both visitors and volunteers safe.

The last day of opening in 2020 will be Sunday 1 November 2020.

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 are currently no public toilet facilities on site. 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.
