Meetings & Conferences

St Nicholas Priory, founded in 1087, is Exeter’s oldest building. It’s steeped in history and offers a unique and inspiring venue for any kind of meeting.

We are conveniently located in the heart of the city on Mint Lane with walking access from Fore Street or Bartholomew Street West. Mary Arches Car Park is a 5 minute walk, or for those travelling by pubic transport, Exeter Central Station is just a 10 minute walk. The coach station is a 15 minute walk with many buses stopping on the High Street.

We have two meetings spaces, one in the West Wing of the Priory and a dedicated meeting room in the North Wing at No. 21 The Mint.

Both are ideal for small conferences, meetings, workshops and training sessions. The rooms have capacity for 12-50 people depending on the layout – lecture, boardroom or classroom style.

In addition, our peaceful garden provides a space for activities, a quiet space to meditate under our magnificent magnolia tree or just an area to stretch your legs and get a breath of fresh air.
