Finchale Priory

Open: 10am-5pm daily. Free. This comparatively small priory is situated in a scenic spot on the banks of the River Wear, about 4 miles from Durham. From its lowly beginning as a hermitage for St. Godric, Finchale became a Benedictine priory dependent on Durham Cathedral towards the end of the 12th century.
