In 2008 the Priory and St Bees History Group obtained a grant from the Heritage Lottery fund to upgrade and develop the historic displays in the church. Previously, the displays although of professional standard in respect of the information, were not displayed in a matching way.

Apart from the general history and architecture to be seen inthe church, there are three main areas of displays - the Lapidarium, containing one of the best displays of mediaeval stones in the north of England, and a display about St Bees Man; a study area containing displays and information about the church and village; and a small area in the Lady Chapel.
