First visit to an English heritage site. Fantastic place to visit. Really enjoyed the free audio tour. Very informative. Parking limited but you can always find a space. Toilets on site were very clean. Also a beautiful setting for our picnic. Will visit again.

Beautiful English Heritage Place. The area of the ruine is extensive. It must have been magnificent before Henry 8th had it demolish. Still looks grand . There is also a small museum.

Known for being one of the best preserved Abbey/ Priory ruins in England. While not as large as Tintern Abbey in Wales, this site shows an English site at its best. Combine this visit to the Town and Castle to see a planned Norman town....More

Castle Acre ruins is set in a lovely little village with amazing country views. Well worth a visit for the priory, as well as the quaint little village.

Castle Acre Priory was amazing. It still had painted ceiling planks and a lot of the carvings were still intact. Really impressed with it. I did wish the sun had been out because it would have been even prettier. One of my new favorites for...More
