A warm welcome awaits you in the shadow of Hadrian's Wall

Lanercost Priory

Lanercost Priory

The beautiful and now tranquil setting of Augustinian Lanercost Priory belies an often-troubled history. It suffered frequent attacks during the Anglo-Scottish wars, once by Robert Bruce in person.

The mortally sick King Edward I rested here, shortly before his death. The east end of the noble 13th-century church survives to its full height and there are some magnificent cloisters. Its riverside location allows for picnics and there is a tearoom and shop close by. During the Summer there are frequent craft fairs in the nearby Dacre Hall.
