Set within 10 acres of land, Priory Maze and Gardens is one of my favourite spots in north Norfolk, a place I enjoy visiting regularly.
There are several themed gardens to explore and a hedge maze to get lost in too (something the kids particularly enjoy).
The gardens include a wildflower meadow, pine walk, a winter garden, herb and aromatic gardens, the Romantic Garden and the Riviera Garden.
With a stream running through the gardens and two ponds, this is a fantastic habitat for a wide range of mammals, birds, and insects. It’s a heavenly location and a great place to practice your photography skills.
It’s a beautiful spot, especially with the remains of the Beeston Regis Priory (St. Mary’s) still visible in the background. The priory came to end in 1538 when Henry VIII ordered the dissolution of monasteries and priories.
To supplement your day there’s an excellent café (often promoting local artists), a plant centre and a gift cabin.
If you plan to come frequently, season tickets are worth considering.
