Beautifully placed between the city of York and the town of Malton , the riverside ruins of Kirkham Priory are set in the beautiful Derwent valley near the Yorkshire Wolds. At this peaceful tourist attraction, learn all about the secret visit of Winston Churchill during World War II and unlock the connection between Helmsley Castle and the priory.
A perfect place to stop if on a family day out or if you’re walking or cycling in this area of outstanding beauty and discover the story of monk’s life or enjoy a picnic by the river in the Augustinian ruins.
