St Nicholas Priory
off Fore Street
Originally part of a medieval monastery, this splendid Grade 1 listed building later became the Tudor home of a wealthy merchant family. Now presented as their richly furnished Elizabethan town house adorned with beautifully crafted replica furniture and bright paint and textiles of the period, St Nicholas Priory is one of Exeter's Hidden jewels.
Also displayed are some of Exeter’s original Tudor artefacts from the collection at the Royal Albert Memorial Museum.
