Wellcome Genome Campus Conference Centre,
CB10 1RQ


The Wellcome Genome Campus Conference Centre is a beautiful complex within the Hinxton Hall Estate and its 125-acre parkland bordering the river Cam. It is located alongside research institutions that are both at the forefront of the biomedical revolution and home to life-changing scientific history, creating a unique combination of atmosphere, history and cutting-edge science.

The Conference Centre opened its refurbished state-of-the-art facilities in 2015. Blending stunning contemporary architecture with the existing Grade II*- listed country house of Hinxton Hall, the purpose-built venue provides an energising space in an idyllic setting.

• 300-seat Auditorium with all the latest audiovisual capabilities
• A superb exhibition area with poster display provision, bar and refreshment stations
• 8 distinctive meeting rooms with flexible set-up options for groups of 2 to 130 people
• A 300-seat restaurant with view over the lawns
• On-site accommodation: 134 modern and comfortable bedrooms
• Outdoor space for team building activities and BBQs
• All-inclusive 8-, 12-, or 24-hour delegate packages
• Complimentary parking for 180 cars and bike rack

The Conference Centre is an impressive modern space surrounding the Francis Crick Auditorium. Underneath the glass roof lies a large, naturally-lit open venue with an event bar – ideal for informal discussion, networking, poster sessions and evening drinks – and the Campus Genome Gallery. Off the main area are two medium-large meeting rooms (Rosalind Franklin and Barbara McClintock Pavilions) that can be set up in a variety of layouts, and two smaller loft meeting rooms upstairs.
Hinxton Hall compliments the modern Centre with three sumptuous period meeting rooms, lounges, a residents’ bar, and the Conference Centre restaurant.
