Museum & Visitors’ Centre Open

Chapter House Chapter Way, London

The exhibition displays the life of Merton Priory from its founding in 1114 until the present day. It tells the story of many important events that took place in the Priory, where both the only English Pope, Adrian IV and Saint Thomas Becket were educated. Twenty years after Magna Carta, in 1236, Parliament met at Merton Priory to prepare the written parliamentary law in the form of the eleven chapters of the Statute of Merton, the very first Statute of England.
