We're very excited to announce that virtual reality is coming to Cartmel Priory!
From Tuesday 3rd April, visitors to the Priory will be able to experience ‘The Young Martyr’, an immersive VR attraction developed by Holdens.
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.
Catherine has been a regular visitor for a number of years now and always connects really well with Hannes.
This weekend she had a training session in the arena before heading out for a quiet hack round the village. She finished with another session in the arena on Doutzen who treated her to her amazing floating canter.
Sandy captured some beautiful images on the day despite the rain - here’s just a few!
Sandy was having great fun testing her new camera this weekend. Droomie always loves posing for her whatever the occasion. Given how grubby he was he thought he’d offer some of his more glamorous poses 😂
