Children’s Crafts – Platinum Jubilee 2022

St Nicholas Priory invites you to our drop-in crafts session for children of all ages. We’ll be decorating our own crowns to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

Sunday 1-4pm

Monday 10-4pm

We ask parents to stay with their children at all times. Tickets £3.00 at the door.


Do come and join us to soak up the history of Exeter’s oldest building and this quiet corner of the city.

Founded by William the Conqueror in 1087, St Nicholas Priory was home to Benedictine monks for over 400 years and is the oldest building in Exeter. In 1536, like other monasteries, it was closed and the remains became the home of wealthy Tudor merchants.


St Nicholas Priory is in Mint Lane with walking access from Fore Street or Bartholomew Street West.
The nearest car park is Mary Arches Street (5 mins). Parking at Smythen Street and Harlequin Shopping Centre is also available.  Exeter Central railway station (10 mins). The bus station is a 15-minute walk away with many buses stopping on the High Street (1o mins).


Unfortunately, only the ground floor of our building is wheelchair-accessible.

Accessible loos and nappy-changing facilities.
