About St Nicholas Priory


Join us for a night at Exeter's oldest building at over 900 years old.

Once a Benedictine Monastery now a museum. A Grade 1 listed building, located in Exeter city centre.

St. Nicholas Priory a Benedictine monastery was founded in 1087. In the 12th and 13th centuries the Priory gathered gifts of land and property and new monastic buildings were erected as funds permitted. Monks provided hospitality for pilgrims and other travellers with accommodation for important guests. The Priory had a very important and lively life within the city until the dissolution of the smaller monasteries by King Henry VIII in 1536, when the monks were pensioned off and their church and cloisters were pulled down. Between 1575 and 1602, the building was turned into an impressive Elizabethan town house. The priory was brought in 1913 to restore it to show the original monastic architecture and opened in 1916 as a small museum. Today still serving as a museum, furninshed as an Elizabethan town house.


With so much history its no suprise the priory is haunted. What will you encounter. Could it be the spirit of the man of the cloth, who is said to be angry! The children who reside downstairs in the dinning room. Reports of noises from the kitchen and the smell of tobacco.
