Our Recovery Programme focuses on breaking exclusion for those recovering from addictions, giving them tools for well-being and resilience in their lives.
St Antony's Priory extends a warm welcome to individuals and small groups wishing to benefit from its calm atmosphere and the gift of space away from the ongoing busyness of daily life. Located almost in the centre of Durham City, England, the Priory captures a magnificent panorama of the Cathedral and Castle, viewed from its pleasant gardens. It offers a peaceful opportunity for those seeking relaxation and refreshment. You can see images of the priory in both the slideshows and galleries within our website.
