Buckfast Abbey Conference Centre



A Welcoming & Accessible Conference Venue

In line with government guidelines we are now taking bookings as we look to open our conference centre from the Monday 19th July. We have very high safety standards, as recognised by Visit England, and we will have regular cleaning of our conference rooms and dining area. We boast large spacious rooms and we also have an abundance of stunning outdoor areas for breakout sessions.

We are also delighted to announce that the newly refurbished Schiller Hall is due to open Monday 21st June 2021. This elegant, contemporary building which integrates material such as zinc and copper, both present on the roof of the Abbey church, and timber cladding, which echoes the wooded context of the River Dart, results in an additional 2,200 sq ft of additional space. This is a project that will create a wealth of new multi-functional state-of-the-art facilities. The new building will support a range of functions such as performances, rehearsal space, art, film and theatre shows, dinners and trade shows, social and educational events.

Throughout the site, we have advanced audiovisual technology, delicious catering with a dedicated team of event professionals; you can be sure of a successful conference event
Buckfast Abbey Conference Centre is the perfect place to host an inspirational conference, training seminar, lunch, dinner or special event. The majority of the rooms overlook beautifully maintained gardens that surround the Abbey.
