Exeter Historic Building Trust (EHBT) exists to preserve for the benefit of the people of Exeter and the nation buildings and other structures in and around the city of particular beauty or of historic or architectural merit.

EHBT was founded in 1996 to rescue the former refectory wing of the 11th century Benedictine monastery of St Nicholas Priory.


Our building works are nearing completion and we are planning to return to our normal Sunday opening (1-4pm) at the end of September 2020.

Please note: Due to recent changes in government guidance we have decided to cancel our Heritage Open Day events on the 12th, 13th, 19th and 20th of September. Please keep an eye on our social media for updates about future tours and events.

Even when St Nicholas Priory is closed you can still explore the building. Check out these 360° images from Creation Graphics www.nicholaspriory.com/visit-us/
