Prittlewell Priory is a medieval priory in the Prittlewell area of Southend, Essex, England. It was founded in the 12th century, by monks from the Cluniac Priory of St Pancras and passed into private hands at the time of the dissolution of the monasteries under Henry VIII. The last private owner, R. A. Jones, gave the priory and the grounds to the local council. The grounds now form a public park, Priory Park, and the Grade I listed building is open to the public. Priory Park is located adjacent to the priory.

Love priory park. The grounds people do such a fantastic job and obviously take pride in their work. Walk my dog there every day. Shame some visitors don't use the extra new bins that have been placed around the park. Playground in great, my grandchildren love it over there.
One of the best kept parks I have ever seen. The greenery, ponds, children's area ,museum, information centre, bandstand, bowling green and wildlife are all in abundance. You can go fishing, visit the cafeteria, play tennis or simply relax. In the summer holidays you have the Sundays with inflatables. There are musical events too. Some free.
We love coming to this park as it is the best for miles around but recently we are very disappointed with the condition of the ponds/fountains. They are all green and full of weed and rubbish and the fountains haven't worked for months! This spoils an otherwise beautiful place to visit! We did ask a member of staff but they don't seem to now why this has been neglected. I have still given it 4 stars and hope it can be brought up to its beautiful standard
Nice park. Kept well. Wish you could walk on paths all round the lake. My other moan is too many parts of the park, ban dogs! Stupid!
Lovely little park to have a wonder around.. playground for kids, tea shops and tennis courts for the adults. When we went the band stand had a bit of music practice, which was a nice soundtrack to a sunny day.
Lovely well maintained parks and gardens, tennis courts, bandstand, cafe and of course the priory and museum. Carparking for 20 plus cars which fills up quite quickly. There is a children's play area and a small fishing lake.
Love this park. So much to do here and very well kept. Sink in toilet was out of order, but other than that the playground and fields etc. we're lovely
This public park has a lot going on. Not only does it have tea rooms, band stand, tennis courts, bowls greens, football/ cricket pitches, children's play areas, duck pond, keep fit and cycle paths it also has an medieval priory, museum and gardens. All within a contract but spacious area. There is also free and easy access to a carpark. Excellent public space to exercise and relax.
After the circus the ground was left in a mess. A feeble attempt to level the ground. Diesel contamination just left. FA Jones would turn in his grave. Grass needs to be cut. Standards are going down hill rapidly.
I love this park so much, especially in the summer. To think they were going to build a road through it..the history of the priory and the monks gone forever. Fields, tennis court, gardens, and playground has pretty much been there years...
I love walking the dog here. It’s got everything you could need from a park; pretty gardens, open space, a bandstand with music during the summer on a Sunday, a stream, swings, tennis and even chess! There’s a little visitors centre & a cafe. There is a decent sized car park, although it does get very busy before the Sunday live music.
I know there is always room for improvements in everything, but I will give a fiver to this park because: 1. Very clean and tidy. 2. Nice and we'll maintained children playground area. 3. I like the diversity of this park, children area, garden flower with pond and fishes, small lake, activities pitch, "secret" flower garden. In two words, Love it.
