VR launch event
We’re very excited to announce that virtual reality is coming to Cartmel Priory!
Join us from 11am on Tuesday 3rd April to celebrate the launch of our new VR attraction ‘The Young Martyr’.
The experience will transport you back to 1537 and the time of the reformation. You’ll be immersed in the story of the Priory’s resident monks, who learnt of King Henry VIII’s plans to send an army to Cartmel to destroy the Priory and made the brave decision to stay and do whatever they could to save their place of worship.
It’s truly an experience not to be missed and we welcome everyone to attend the launch event on Tuesday 3rd April, where you’ll be able to try the VR experience for FREE from 11.00am-5.00pm. There’ll be multiple VR set ups to reduce waiting times.
You’ll also be able to find out more about how the VR experience was made and the inspiration behind it through an in-depth art installation, as well as guided tours of the Priory to explore the building’s incredible 800-year history.

Please note, after Tuesday 3rd April tickets for the VR experience will be priced at £5 per adult and £4 per child (under 16). All proceeds will go towards maintenance and improvements that allow us to keep the building up and running. Additional donations are always welcome.
We look forward to seeing you there!
