Castle Acre Priory is one of the largest and best preserved monastic sites in England. The foundation in about 1090 sprang directly from a visit by William de Warenne II and his wife Gundrada to the great French monastery of Cluny. There is more to see at the priory, including the remains of many of the buildings round the cloister. The recreated herb garden next to the visitor centre grows herbs which the monks would have used for medicinal, culinary and decorative purposes.
