Set in the picturesque medieval village of Little Walsingham, one of the most famous villages in England, the Abbey Grounds contain the ruin of the famous Augustinian Priory.

A place of pilgrimage since the 11th century, visitors can enjoy the tranquil gardens and, over the ancient packhorse bridge, the river and woodland walks lead into unspoilt natural woods and parkland. During the snowdrop season the Abbey grounds are open daily and home to perhaps the most impressive naturalized display of snowdrops in the country, with visitors from all parts of the country returning to see them year after year.

The admission price includes entry to the Shirehall Museum. This 16th century building was used as a magistrate's court until 1971. The Georgian courtroom has remained unaltered since it was last used and is now part of the 'hands-on' museum which also includes displays on the history of Walsingham.
