Admittedly, the site may not seem spectacular however the original entire abbey wood have been and it is extremely relevant to the history and development of Merton. The devoted archaeologist and dedicated volunteers have worked so hard to secure lottery funding and get to this point. The museum is free and very well laid out, with displays that wouldn't look out of place in any renowned museum. There are examples of the architecture using genuine pieces, the foundation of the abbey chapter House and also information about burials and a separate display about the subsequent industries on the site. Moreover it's still a work in progress. Well worth a popping into if visiting the SavaCentre or Merton Abbey Mills.

Absolutely astonishing, great history.

Surrey's second greatest church (after Chertsey Abbey) now lies under an M&S superstore car park. Well done to those preserving its memory.

Worth a visit with plenty of informative history boards about the priory through the ages. There are some finds on view, but mainly floor tiles and fragments of columns. The museum is only opened on specific days, but is situated right under the road. The old priory was massive in its heyday, but only the chapter house remains visible. Allow an hour for your visit. The museum is free but donations are always welcomed. There are a few books and small souvenirs for sale at the exit.

Such a hidden gem. You have done an excellent job of keeping this local history alive.

Great history of the UK after the Norman invasion and glad it’s a site of national importance in the heart of Merton. I look forward to the grand re-opening in September of the New visitors centre.
