Welcome to Walsingham Abbey, where the grounds surrounding our historic house are famous for the spectacular ruins of the mediaeval Priory of our Lady of Walsingham, as well as miraculous swathes of naturalised snowdrops in early spring. Later in spring the grounds fill with daffodils and the woods with wild garlic and bluebells. In summer the grounds offer a green leafy haven of peace.
Walsingham Abbey Grounds opening hours from 26th July 2021 are Monday & Wednesday 11am-3.30pm, Tuesday & Thursday-Sunday 11am-4pm
Last entry: we recommend allowing at least an hour for a visit, but we do not have a formal last entry time. It is up to you, however there is no discounted admission for late entry.
‘Walsingham’ is two unspoiled, connected North Norfolk villages, Little, or ‘New’ Walsingham, and a mile away, Great or ‘Old’ Walsingham; both have a wealth of interest for the visitor with historic buildings, shops and places to eat and drink.
Walsingham has a long history of religious pilgrimage, dating back to the 11th century. Today we welcome visitors and pilgrims from all religious denominations, or none.
