Walk up the Main Street leaving the bridge behin and as you reach the last stand of shops this lovely old church appears. Stands in small grounds and is worth a visit.

St Mary's Priory Church is a nice enough church that offers free entry, however it isn't a really stunning church so is probably only worth visiting if you are already in Monmouth.

This is a lovely old church. Worth popping into for a visit. The grounds surrounding the church are also nice

This is a beautiful church right the in the middle of a very scenic old town. Highly recommend the visit and a must to walk around the village. The streets have interesting shops and old buildings to admire

Great to see a welcoming church. Love the ambience, a whiff of incense. Stayed to light a candle. Obviously well cared for.

St Mary's Priory Church is a beautiful, there's no other word for it. There's not masses inside, but it loses nothing for that, because what is there is well worth visiting.

I visited this church largely because I think some of my ancestors may be buried here. While looking for their tombs, I was struck by the beauty of the stained glass window at the rear of the church and intrigued by all the old tombs...More

Well and lovingly maintained church with points of interest outside and in. The door stayed open which is welcoming.

Lovely church to visit and lots of quiet space to sit in the grounds (great for shade during a hot summer's day).
