We’ve just been today to see the magnificent snow drops display. It’s beautiful and breathtaking.
The only downside is it very difficult, limiting, for people with mobility issues.

Snowdrops lovely but staff rude, ignorant and unhelpful. Despite 2 in the paydesk they both ignored us stood waiting for over 5 minutes, a simple acknowledgement would have been fine but nothing. Signage to and from the Abbey is non existent, and the signs are conflicting around the carpark regarding direction and entrance and exit, roads are dicey enough without confusion. Be aware all surrounding roads are flooded, some over a foot deep, a warning on the website given visitor volume currently would be an idea as many were evidently not local and caught out by floods

Without any hesitation this place is the biggest tourist rip off I’ve ever come across.
So, I’m into my history and whilst on holiday, took the chance to visit the Abbey ruins. I’ve seen all their advertising and marketing, (Abbey ruins, archaeology, gardens, parkland etc..) and saw this as ‘my type of place’ to visit. I was initially shocked at the entry fee, £20 per person. But thought, wow, this really must be something worth seeing. Oh, how wrong was I!
Firstly, the illustrated map looked inviting. But, the 40 or so building featured were not accessible, nor was the very large mansion. Access to the grounds was equally as bad, some 25% of the land shown on the map is actually private grounds of the mansion and off limits. The gardens were shabby, unkept and overgrown with weeds and what was left of the parklands was nothing more than a couple of fields. Facilities are appalling, no café or refreshments and the toilets were disgusting and a shambles, much like the loos you would have found in a municipal park in the 60’s and 70’s. There was also, very few seats or benches to sit on.
Now for the much advertised history. What history? No staff or volunteers to talk to. No information boards; and nothing to see! Apart from the East window arch, there is nothing, everything is covered in a lawn. There was a ‘timeline’ board in the ‘crypt’. But that was very poor, it’s vague and in places inaccurate in it’s information. The ‘history’ is even whitewashed and only starts from the period of the alleged ‘vision’ and seems to have ignored the previous 3,000 years of history of this particular site being of significant religious worship. I also say ‘crypt’ begrudgingly, because it isn’t a crypt. A crypt has a very defined architectural label; this was a ground floor room of indeterminable age and repair and of no standing. All in all shambolic at best; but more accurately, a complete and utter rip off. This place is nothing more than a municipal park for which you are being charged £20 to visit. Save your money and visit any number of council owned parks in the area.

Walsingham is such a pretty village - an archetypal English country village really - which, sadly, is ruined by religion. I guess it is no surprise to find such blatant and disgusting commercialism everywhere you look - after all, there is nobody more gullible than a devout Christian, so one should really expect to stumble upon crass trinkets and rip-offs wherever you go - but it is so very depressing. And, much as we would like to have wandered around the Abbey ruins, we were somewhat stymied by the fact that you have to pay something ridiculous to even just go in. Surely this is a part of our nation's heritage and should be free to enter for anyone who so chooses? Apparently not. I was rather amazed not to have to pay to have a wazz at the village centre public toilets, but then I guess the authorities had taken the piss quite enough by then anyway. Such a shame.

Shelling out £12 for a couple might be par for the course at most visitor attractions these days but usually there’s something to see once inside.
Here, what remains is few and far between, much of it doctored to match a 19th century aesthetic.
The vision-inspired shrine that motivated the establishment of the priory lies under a grass mound, marked by a mossy wooden tablet and missable notice.
The imposing arc of the east window: almost the only discernible fragment. The crypt: ruined by redundant exhibition panels. The flower borders: riddled with ground elder. The adjoining ‘museum’: abandoned. The former court house: left to rot.
I think the attitude of the owners of this relic can be summed up by the experience of the disabled toilet user, of which I am one. The signage — alluding to past grandeur — points clearly to a facility that, after navigating broken concrete ramps and stinging nettle covered guide rails, leads to a hand scrawled note on the loo door telling me the toilets are out of order.
Paying visitors deserve to be indulged. What should be a principal destination for discovering information about the Christian faith and English history deserves a reformation.
If you want to see a fabulous priory ruin, or your on a budget, have a quick glance through the gateway and save your pennies for Castle Acre Priory.

This beautiful abbey is so worth a visit, even if you do not have religious leaning. Just an interesting and uplifting experience. The grounds are immaculate and so peaceful. There is a shop/café/toilets/baby change on site, and paid car parking just along the road.

We stopped off at Walsingham and were disappointed by the experience. Virtually all of the RC area was closed. We did however manage to get into the church. The village nearby it was like visiting a ghost town. The Anglican chapel was interesting but choose the timing of your visit carefully as most shops were closed and the whole area was generally uninviting. Good job we were visiting the area of North Norfolk and had not made a special journey just to experience Walsingham.

The history of this site in absolutely fascinating so as well as seeing the remains of the Abbey one can enjoy a very detailed and helpful account of the history in the museum on site. Well worth a visit. Also there are lovely walks in the surrounding woodland area.

The Abbey grounds are peaceful to wander around. I would imagine that September is not the time of year to see them at their best, but even so worth a visit. The Shirehall museum is a bit run down and underwhelming, but a few interesting exhibits showing the old court house and the history of the town. Entry is free if you are a HHA member.

The town itself is nice to wander around with some interesting architecture in the centre and a few shops and tearooms.
