Private Guided Tours

St Nicholas Priory is available to book everyday for private tours

Our knowledgeable guide will take you on a tour of the building and tell you more about its rich varied history. We offer themed and bespoke tours tailored to you requirements that delve into the various stages of the Priory’s transition through the early medieval period to its place today as one of the hidden gems of Exeter.

Themed tours include our general tour which covers all of the history of the Priory. The Ravens & Restoration tour covers Miss Maud Tothill, the first curator of the St Nicholas Priory museum, and the restoration in the early 1900s when the Priory opened as a museum. Our Tudor Tour focuses on the Tudor period of the Priory, and Herstories of the Priory tells the stories of the women  of the Priory’s history.


Tours are also updated regularly to reflect the dedicated efforts of staff and volunteers who actively research the Priory and its lengthy history within Exeter.
