Castle Acre Priory was founded in the 11th century by William de Warenne of France, having been inspired by the Abbey of Cluny in Burgundy.

It dates from 1090 and survived until 1537 when it was surrendered to Henry VIII during the great Dissolution of the Monasteries.

The ruins span seven centuries and include a 15th century gatehouse, a 12th century church with an elaborate west front, a prior's lodging still fit to be lived in, and his private chapel.

The remains of the Castle Acre Castle lie on the eastern side of the village and was the focal point of the Norfolk estates of the Warenne Earls of Surrey. The site is maintained by English Heritage.
