Michelham Priory dates back to 1229. It’s a beautiful site with much to see and enjoy. We visited on a quiet day but there was a blacksmith at work in the smithy, a Tudor cook at work in the kitchen and archers demonstrating their skills in the grounds.
The house was originally an Augustinian priory but has been much altered and enjoyed a variety of uses since. This varied history is reflected in the architecture and the displays and artefacts shown.
