The ruins of this priory in the Tees valley are dominated by the dramatic skeleton of the 14th century church's east end, an outstanding example of early Gothic architecture.
One of the first Augustinian priories to be built in England, Gisborough was founded by the Bruce family, ancestors of Robert the Bruce, King of Scotland.
The canons rebuilt their church no fewer than three times, and what survives gives us a tantalising glimpse of the priory's former riches.
Managed by Gisborough Priory Project.

Plan a Great Day Out
Regarded as the 'gateway to the North York Moors', Gisborough is ideally situated to be paired with a trip to Mount Grace Priory or Whitby Abbey.
Mount Grace Priory is the only Carthusian monastery open to the public in England. Discover for yourself how the monks lived 600 years ago by exploring the reconstructed monk's cell.
Mount Grace also boasts a shop selling snacks and cold drinks and is a great place for a picnic.
Whitby Abbey's haunting remains have a packed events programme and can be found just over 20 miles away. The site was once the inspiration for Bram Stoker's Dracula and today there's still plenty to sink your teeth into.
