Michelham Priory boasts England’s longest medieval water filled moat and offers a great day out for all the family.

The moat encircles a site steeped in history dating back to 1229, from its foundation by Augustinian canons, through the destruction caused by the dissolution of the monasteries in Tudor times and into its later life as a country house in World War II. On this picturesque island you can explore the magnificent Tudor mansion, impressive 14th-century gatehouse, working watermill and forge.

Kids can play in the replica Bronze Age roundhouse and playground plus engage with the plenty of hands on activities throughout the site, or enjoy visit the cake or Dovecote shop.

Outside relax in the seven acres of gardens and grounds, take a walk around the moat, discover the recreated cloister, physic and kitchen gardens or visit on one of the many special events throughout the year. There is plenty inside and out at Michelham Priory to keep the family entertained all day, eleven months of the year!
