I visited this very interesting place helping my daughter with a group of children from her school. We all dressed up and ate the food of the time which was delicious. Both the children and adults had a wonderful and very informative time.

The oldest roofed building in Exeter and a good insight into the Tudor and medieval periods. The family activities are particularly fun so check ahead as many of them are free.

We visited this attraction with friends at easter. We were surprised to find such a wide range of activities on offer, and even the adults got to dress up in Tudor costume! It's beautifully presented and well worth a visit.

Very interesting. The painted wood panels were gorgeous (if not authentic), and all rooms had been restored very tastefully. The volunteer was lovely, helpful and knowledgeable.

Nearly missed this, signage not great. Knowledgeable staff, happy to talk you round the property. Good video explaining history of Priory. Worth a visit.
