Just entering the Priory undercroft is jaw dropping but then you move into Tudor life. There is even a display of ancient medical stuff. Magical

Interesting building with some good interpretation material. They could do a lot more but the building fabric is deteriorating fast. See it while you can. Look out for "Exeter Open Days" when the it is open and free. Suitable for most ages as the visit...More

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.

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.
