Adorned with quality replica furniture and painted in the bright colours of the period, the Priory is presented as the 1602 home of the wealthy Hurst family. The display of Elizabethan items from the city's collection, the addition of modern amenities and new interpretation allows greater access to the Priory and gives a wonderful insight into Tudor life.

From Easter to October the Priory is open to all on:

  • Saturdays during Devon school term times
  • Monday to Saturday during school holidays.

Group tours and school visits can be booked throughout the year.

The Priory is always closed on Bank Holidays and sometimes closed for special events.  Please check before travelling.

See Visitor information for further information and entry prices.

Group visits can be booked for term time weekdays.

Details of special events at the Priory are listed on the Royal Albert Memorial Museum (RAMM) - what's on at RAMM pages.

The 2007 reinterpretation as a Tudor home was undertaken with funding from the HLF and Renaissance.
