Michelham Priory House & Gardens

Michelham Priory House & Gardens Michelham Priory Road, Upper Dicker, near Hailsham, East Sussex

Michelham Priory boasts England’s longest medieval water filled moat and offers a great day out for all the family. The moat encircles a site steeped in history dating back to 1229, from its foundation by Augustinian canons, through the destruction caused by the dissolution of the monasteries in Tudor times and into its later life as a country house.

On this picturesque island you will find the magnificent Tudor mansion, impressive 14th-century gatehouse with an interactive medieval gallery, working watermill and forge, replica Bronze Age roundhouse and Elizabethan Great Barn. In the 7acres of grounds discover the kitchen garden, physic and medieval herb garden. Visit the website for the regular events program throughout the year.
