The Niland Centre – Facilities and Booking

The Niland Conference Centre is a bright and spacious single-storey building located within the beautiful and spacious grounds of Rosary Priory Convent.

It is fully wheelchair accessible.

There is limited free parking immediately adjacent to the Centre, together with some overflow spaces in the grounds of the Priory. Additional parking is available on local side streets.

WiFi is available throughout the Centre and Refreshments (teas, real coffee, herbal teas) are provided with all bookings.

The Niland Conference Centre does not provide other catering, but outside caterers may be used. Many local caterers are familiar with the Centre. Suggestions are available upon request.

The Centre has its own meditation garden with benches and a fish pond, which provides a quiet space for reflection. The gardens of the Priory grounds are open to anyone who uses the Centre.

The Conference Room is a bright, airy and peaceful space with under-floor heating and a good natural acoustic that can be enhanced by the PA system.

          Great venue for off-site meetings, lovely surroundings. Stevie D

          The Niland Centre is a place where there is an amazing energy, calmness and peace. It was exactly what we hoped it would be today and I know that everyone in our group really appreciated being there.

          From your welcome, to your bells, your mugs to your hugs – everything went towards making our experience a lovely one. Please pass on my personal thanks to Sister Dominica who worked so hard today and nothing was too much trouble. Tracy Skyme
