We are excited to join Heritage Open Days 2023!

16th and 17th September, 1-4pm
Do come and join us to soak up the history of Exeter’s oldest building and this quiet corner of the city.
Founded by William the Conqueror in 1087, St Nicholas Priory was home to Benedictine monks for over 400 years and is the oldest building in Exeter. In 1536, like other monasteries, it was closed and the remains became the home of wealthy Tudor merchants.
