Hiring the Guildhall

The Guildhall has served as the centrepiece of Exeter's civic life for more than 800 years. A structure of outstanding architectural interest, it is not merely an ancient monument but remains a busy working building - still in regular use for a variety of civic functions and full meetings of the City Council. It can also be hired for private events, weddings and civil ceremonies.
