    About

    The Priory enjoys a prime town centre location and yet still benefits from its own 19 acre parkland setting -The contrast in environment is striking - to one side is the quaint market town of Hitchin and to the other acres of secluded parkland allowing conference delegates and guests the best of both worlds - The grounds are ideal for outdoor activities of every kind - Originally a Carmelite monastery built in 1317 Hitchin Priory has progressively evolved over the centuries and now gracefully combines a mosaic of ages - The Priory helps you forget the hustle and bustle of a busy business schedule allowing you to enjoy distraction-free meetings and events with a clear head - The main house offers gloriously decorated rooms ideal for private functions - Alternatively the beautiful Marquee located adjacent to the River Hiz running through the grounds can seat between 80-200 people and is ideal for corporate functions as well as weddings and other special occasions - WiFi and internet access is available in all bedrooms and meeting rooms
