Press, Film and Photography

The Devon and Exeter Institution’s imposing Grade II* listed building and evocative library provides an atmospheric setting for film and photography from small scale productions and fashion shoots to television dramas and feature films.

Due to the unique and fragile nature of our building and collection we invite you to discuss your requirements before booking the DEI as a location.

Please contact for further details.
