Set amid woodland in North Yorkshire, this unusual monastery is the best preserved Carthusian priory in Britain. Mount Grace Priory is the perfect tourist attraction for a relaxing and peaceful day out. Discover how the monks lived 600 years in the reconstructed monk's cell and herb plot. The crumbling masonry and open grassland have become home to a collection of wildlife that has taken advantage of what man and the monks left behind. The famous priory stoats inhabit the passages under Mount Grace and are possibly the best-known colony of stoats in Yorkshire and even the British Isles.

Please note: on the days there are summer evening theatre events, the site will open at 12 noon.
