Lakeside Conference Centre

Lakeside Conference Facility at a world renowned science campus

At the Lakeside Conference Centre you can swap the hustle and bustle of the office for an environment more conducive to clear thinking and creativity. It's the perfect setting for every type of event, whether it's a major conference, an exhibition, a board meeting, a workshop or training course.

Set in 32 hectares of wooded countryside just outside the historic city of York, the conference centre is the ideal place to get away from your daily routine and focus on your special event. The site is easy to reach by road and is just eight miles from York's mainline railway station. There is a large secure car park adjacent to the conference centre, and all our facilities have disabled access.

Our dedicated conference team will arrange everything to ensure your event runs smoothly, from setting up the rooms to providing a full catering service in line with your requirements. If your conference is for more than a day, we can even take away the hassle of finding accommodation for you.

Our facilities include:

  • Conference and meeting rooms
  • Exhibition space
  • Integrated audio visual equipment
  • Communication facilities
  • PC training suite
  • Reception services and event management
  • Full catering service (with 5/5 rating for food hygiene) 


Our recently refurbished mezzanine area, immediately adjacent to the Sand Hutton Suite, provides a large open space that can be used as a breakout area between meetings, or for smaller group discussions.

The mezzanine is also perfect for hosting exhibitions and displays.

On warmer days, why not make use of the balcony which overlooks the lake and our landscaped grounds?
