Gisborough Priory was founded in 1119 by Robert Bruce, 1st Lord of Annandale, an ancestor to the Scottish king Robert the Bruce. It lies in the town of Guisborough, now in the borough of Redcar and Cleveland and the ceremonial county of North Yorkshire, England.

An Augustinian community, the priory was largely destroyed in the Dissolution of the Monasteries and the stones from it were used in other buildings in the town including Saint Nicholas' Anglican church. The east end was left standing with its large window forming a distinctive arch shape, a well-known landmark which is often used as a symbol of the town.
