The Knowledge Spa provides modern, innovative and high quality facilities. Its teaching, learning and business activities include:

The Knowledge Spa is also the base for the Plymouth University School of Dentistry Facility and Exeter University European Centre for Environment and Human & Health.


The Dental Education Facility provides a first class environment for the provision of treatment and education. Care is available free of charge from dental students under the supervision of qualified local dentists. NHS patients who are happy to be treated by a supervised dental student are welcome and can telephone the Call Centre on 0845 155 8109 for further information.


Alongside the educational activities, the European Centre for Environment & Human Health represents part of the University of Exeter Medical School’s research and focuses on the interconnection between the natural environment and human health.


The Knowledge Spa has a variety of different rooms which are available for hire. It is a highly attractive venue for hosting conferences, meetings, events, functions and exhibitions and we are able to accommodate meetings ranging from 6 to 150 people.


Whether you want to arrange a formal training session in a classroom setting, Board Room style meeting, a quick catch up or require a large area for display you will find a room that suits your requirements. We also offer a video conferencing service, allowing delegates from a range of organisations to meet together without anyone having to leave their office.
