Following nearly a thousand years of Crown occupation, the Exeter Castle, its courtyard and the backdrop of the Northernhay Gardens now provide one of the most unique event & wedding venues in Devon and arguably in the South West. We offer modern yet traditional spaces for culture, commerce & living.

The splendid Castle Courtyard is ideal for outdoor events and has played host to the likes of Coldplay and Le Roux in the past, providing an intimate and impressive backdrop for big names and local talents alike. The Exeter Castle is also a great location for indoor events such as weddings, parties, conferences and other functions with light, airy and newly restored Ballroom and Terrace Rooms.
