Michelham Priory dates back to 1229 and is surrounded by England's longest water filled moat. The site was founded by Augustinian canons and after the destruction caused by the dissolution of the monasteries in Tudor times and eventually became a country house.
Today the site is very popular with wedding parties, educational tours for children (including hands on) and corporate events. There is a water mill, large grounds and a cafe.
