About us

Set within a one hundred acre estate bordering the River Cam, Hinxton Hall Conference Centre is located on the Wellcome Genome Campus, alongside research institutions that are at the forefront of the genomics revolution.

We are an adaptable venue with a unique combination of atmosphere, history and cutting-edge meeting spaces, facilities, and services.

We are part of Wellcome Connecting Science, and host an extensive programme of learning and training events and activities for research and healthcare professionals.

Collectively, our Events Team has decades of experience in meeting the needs of scientific and research meeting organisers. In addition to our expertise and understanding of the biomedical and life sciences sector, our adaptable team provides a professional service to ensure that you are able to enjoy an excellent meeting.

We had a wonderful time at our conference. The facilities are world-class, and the staff are outstanding, professional and friendly, offering a great customer experience. The catering was excellent (and the lamb curry, in particular was delicious). Everything was considered, right down to the last tiny detail. I would not hesitate to recommend Hinxton Hall Conference Centre to anyone planning their next event.

Hinxton Hall

The grade II* listed Hinxton Hall has three sumptuous period meeting rooms, lounges, a bar, and dining room.

Conference Centre

Opened in 1997, this is a purpose-built event venue with cutting edge audio visual facilities, an auditorium, and extensive exhibition space. During 2012-2015 further development included the addition of an elliptical steel and glass roof 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 two additional large meeting rooms, the Rosalind Franklin Pavilion and Barbara McClintock Pavilion, and two smaller meeting spaces in the loft.

Our modern accommodation consists of 126 en-suite, comfortable bedrooms, which are available for event delegates and leisure stays.
