Llanthony Secunda Priory is a special historical place at the heart of Gloucester Docks.
Within our peaceful grounds you can discover remarkable medieval ruins and some of the earliest medieval brickwork in the county. Our Victorian Farmhouse, cattle pond, grassy lawns and veteran trees create a beautiful backdrop for a picnic and family games.
Three beautifully restored listed buildings and our new monastic garden will be free to explore once our Re-formation Project is complete. In the meantime, our footpath connecting Llanthony Road with the Gloucester and Sharpness Canal is open during the week. Feel free to stop by to see how work is progressing, or sign up for updates on our grand opening.
Open days, coming soon…
Llanthony Secunda Priory is transforming. Our £4m HLF supported Re-formation Project is bringing three of Llanthony’s Grade I and II listed buildings back to life.
From September 2018, visitors will be able to step inside our newly restored medieval buildings on open days, or take part in a guided tour.
Regular arts events and festivals will take place in the grounds. Our very first event will be the Stone Carving Festival over August bank holiday weekend.
Our open days are staffed by volunteers. Volunteers also care and maintain our grounds. Join our passionate team and a play a part in this exciting new chapter of Llanthony’s history. You can arrange a private tour of the site with an experienced guide. Contact us for more details
