About St Martin's Priory

St Martin's Hill, North Holmes Road, Canterbury
Kent, CT1 1PW

Welcome to St Martin’s Priory, Canterbury’s hidden gem.  Our venue is nestled in the heart of Kent, and sits snuggly within the borders of the World Heritage site of St Martin’s Church, which is recognised by UNESCO as the oldest church in the English speaking world!

St Martin’s Priory is a Grade II listed building built over 350 years ago. Much of the original architecture remains, creating a space that is filled with history, featuring Jacobean and Georgian architecture, offering you an elegant and sophisticated location for your big day.

St Martin’s Priory is set among 2.5 acres of enchanted gardens and offers you a private location for your wedding day. Your guests can enjoy a drinks reception out on the Tudor lawn, and stroll through the picturesque Rose Gardens. You can also take in the breath-taking views of Canterbury Cathedral from the top lawn.

You will have a dedicated wedding coordinator, who will work alongside you to make sure your day is perfect and runs without a hitch. We will be delighted to support you and advise you on all aspects that you would like to discuss, such as theming and decorating, giving you confidence that your day will be everything that you had hoped.

St Martin’s Priory Wedding Venue prides itself on being bespoke and our dedicated catering team will work with the happy couple to create a menu, personal to them and bursting with flavour. We can offer three course dinners, elegant daytime BBQ's, hog roasts and an array of evening food options.   

St Martin's Priory is licenced to hold ceremonies for up to 60 guests and can hold up to 40 guests for a wedding breakfast within the building. For numbers over this, we work closely with our marquee provider, to provide beautiful, bespoke marquees, made to each couples unique specifications. Please note- the cost of marquee hire is not included in the venue hire price. For further information on marquee hire, please contact us.
