Groups of 25 to 150 delegates can meet both for day or residential conferences. Everyone can be accommodated on one site in our historic buildings and the whole group can dine together in our elegant dining hall.

Our conference, lecture and seminar rooms can accommodate 25 - 50 delegates, and larger lecture rooms are close-by, which means that your whole conference will be based centrally - all in the shadow of Durham's historic Cathedral.
