Great Hall - Wills Memorial Building

About

The University of Bristol, as custodian of some of the city's finest buildings, blends seamlessly with the elegance and bustle of Georgian Clifton and the leafy downsland high above the Avon Gorge.

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.

The location provides an excellent opportunity to tour the surrounding area including Bath, Wells, Glastonbury, Cheddar, the Mendips, historic Gloucestershire and over the magnificent Severn Bridge to South Wales.

The University offers excellent venues for conferences, meetings and social events. By virtue of its role as a centre of learning and research, the University has many flexible facilities including modern tiered lecture theatres, large halls, exhibition areas, attractive meeting rooms and extensive sport facilities.

A magnificent neo-gothic panelled Great Hall seats up to 800 delegates or holds 270 for a banquet.

Bedroom accommodation, including many en-suite rooms, is situated in Clifton offering all the amenities of a bustling city, and in Stoke Bishop, a quiet suburban setting adjacent to acres of open downsland.

Professional catering teams in every venue offer a high standard of catering and flexibility for everything from a working lunch to a formal conference dinner.

A dedicated professional conference team offer support throughout - 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.
