A dedicated professional conference team offer support throughout your event - from the choice of venue to the delivery of service. A warm welcome, professionalism and good value for money are on offer at the University of Bristol. Many venues are historic locations like the Georgian mansions in Clifton or the dramatic neo-gothic Great Hall in the Wills Memorial Building. There are plenty of venues available in contemporary buildings too and, as you’d expect of a leading University, all sites offer comprehensive access to modern facilities.

Chemistry Building: Provides four lecture theatres (max 339 seating) with audio-visual and computing equipment and two foyers for catering and exhibitors.

The Hawthorns: With an in-house professional catering team, which is very experienced at catering for a wide range of tastes and budget, it is easy to see why The Hawthorns is a popular choice.
Victoria Rooms: Has a 665 seat auditorium and several function rooms.
Wills Memorial Building: Groups of between 60 and 270 can be seated, which means there is plenty of capacity for even the largest events.
Badock Hall: Ideal for up to 350 guests for a buffet or self-service meal and up to 280 guests.
Wills Hall: If you want atmosphere, space and a great location, Wills Hall, as one of the University’s best kept secrets, is the perfect venue for a conference.

Bristol's character as a city has been largely formed by its history of maritime trade and its development as the commercial and cultural centre for the South West. The River Avon runs through the city, with the historic City Docks as a focal point. Shops, pubs and cafes border the quayside in restored warehouses.
