Set within 125-acre parkland bordering the River Cam, Hinxton Hall Conference Centre is found alongside research institutions that are at the forefront of the biomedical revolution and home to life-changing scientific history. An adaptable venue with a unique combination of atmosphere, history and cutting-edge science.

The grade II* former country house, Hinxton Hall has three sumptuous period meeting rooms, lounges, a residents’ bar, and the Conference Centre dining room.

The Conference Centre building opened in 1997, five years after the Wellcome Trust bought Hinxton Estate, this is a purpose-built event venue with cutting edge audio visual facilities, an auditorium, and the Genome Gallery exhibition space. During 2012-2015 further development included the addition of an elliptical roof of steel and glass covering 1600m² of new exhibition and breakout spaces. This creates a naturally-lit open and spacious venue space that includes an event bar – ideal for informal discussion, networking, poster sessions and evening drinks.

Within this modern building are an additional two two medium-large accessible meeting rooms, named after two prominent women scientists – Rosalind Franklin and Barbara McClintock, and two small loft meeting rooms.

On-site modern accommodation is also available with 134 en-suite, comfortable bedrooms. Available for event delegates and leisure stays.

The Auditorium is in the heart of the modern exhibition space and accommodates up to 300 people in a tiered theatre style. The Auditorium hosts a comprehensive range of audiovisual equipment controlled by experienced technicians who are on hand throughout your event.
