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.
Monthly Open days and much more…
The recent restoration at Llanthony Secunda Priory, open for the first time in September 2018, has brought two of Llanthony' s Grade I and II listed buildings back to life.
Visitors are now able to step inside our newly restored medieval buildings on our monthly open days and take part in a guided tour to discover its interesting and varied past. Our open days are staffed by our volunteers, many of whom have seen the transformation first hand and will be happy to answer any of your questions.
If you are not able to attend one of our open days, you can arrange a private tour of the site with an experienced guide. Contact us for more details.
Regular arts events and festivals are planned throughout the year, details of which can all be found on our events page and social media pages.
