Abbeys and priories in England lists abbeys, priories, friaries and other monastic religious houses in England.

Overview

In this article alien houses are included, as are smaller establishments such as monastic granges and cells, and also camerae of the military orders of monks (Templars and Hospitallers). The numerous monastic hospitals "per se" are not included here unless at some time the foundations listed functioned as such. Over 1000 establishments in England are listed.
