The Diocesan Education Centre (DEC) – a conference, course and meeting venue on the outskirts of Salisbury.

This distinctive, spacious conference centre offers the perfect solution to your conference and meeting requirements.

‘I have used the DEC many times over the years and find it an excellent venue. The purpose built room is very well equipped and comfortable and the refreshments top quality. There is always a friendly welcome on reception and help is always on hand if needed. It is a pleasure delivering training here!’ Linda Wynne – Maths Adviser, Wiltshire Council
