Hinxton Hall Conference Centre is part of Wellcome Connecting Science, providing meeting, networking and relaxation spaces conducive to learning and sharing.
The grade II* former country house, Hinxton Hall has three sumptuous period meeting rooms, lounges, a residents’ bar, and the Conference Centre dining room.
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.
