Great Hall Dinner

About

 

The University of Bristol is custodian to many of the fine buildings which help shape the character of the city; iconic venues which blend seamlessly with the elegance of Georgian Clifton, or leafy downs high above the Avon Gorge.

The city of Bristol's maritime history gave rise to its development as the commercial and cultural centre of the South West. Now the historic city docks are a focal point where you’ll find quayside shops, pubs and cafes in restored warehouses.

Bristol also makes an excellent base for exploring with much to do and see in places like Bath, Wells, Glastonbury, Cheddar, and the Mendips. Gloucester, Cheltenham, Cardiff and Newport all sit within a 50 mile radius too.

With its impressive property portfolio, the University offers a diverse array of excellent venues for conferences, meetings and social events. As a centre of learning and research, the University’s flexible facilities include modern tiered lecture theatres, large halls, exhibition areas, attractive meeting rooms and extensive sport facilities.

The magnificent neo-gothic oak panelled Great Hall on the University precinct seats up to 800 delegates or a banquet for 250. Bedroom accommodation, including many en-suite rooms, is available in Clifton with all the amenities of a bustling city, and also in Stoke Bishop, a quiet suburban setting on the edge of acres of open grassland.

Professional catering teams at every venue offer a high standard of flexible options ready to provide everything from working lunches to formal conference dinners. When you contact the University of Bristol’s dedicated professional conference team expect a warm welcome and professional support in everything from choice of venue, to delivery of the services you need.
