Walsingham is one of the most famous and popular villages in the country. As one of the main centres for Christian pilgrimage in England, it attracts thousands of visitors from around the world who come to visit its shrines, religious sites and many interesting buildings. The village has been an important religious site since 1061 and in 1153 an Augustinian Priory was founded in the centre of the village. Although it was destroyed in 1538, the remains of the Priory and site of the original shrine can still be seen in the picturesque and tranquil Abbey Grounds. Entry to the grounds is through the Shirehall Museum. This 16th century building was used as a magistrate's court until 1971. The courtroom has survived unaltered since it was last used and is now part of the 'hands-on' museum, which also contains a detailed history of the village and displays on pilgrimage.
