Wellcome Genome Campus Conference Centre Logo
Exceptional conference and meeting facilities at the heart of life-changing science.

Experience the luxury of concentrating on discussion and collaboration whilst everything else is taken care of for you at the Wellcome Genome Campus Conference Centre.

The Wellcome Genome Campus Conference Centre is a beautiful complex within the Hinxton Hall Estate and its 125-acre parkland bordering the river Cam. It is located alongside research institutions that are both at the forefront of the biomedical revolution and home to life-changing scientific history, creating a unique combination of atmosphere, history and cutting-edge science.

The Conference Centre opened its doors in 1997, five years after the Wellcome Trust bought Hinxton Estate, restoring Hinxton Hall and transforming it, and its old stable block and kitchen garden, into a purpose-built Conference Centre. During 2012-2015 the venue was further developed by the addition of an elliptical roof of steel and glass covering 1600m² of new exhibition and breakout spaces. A whole new accommodation block was also built, bringing the on-site accommodation capacity up to 134 modern, comfortable bedrooms.

The Conference Centre is an impressive modern space surrounding the recently-refurbished Francis Crick Auditorium. Underneath the new glass roof lies a large, naturally-lit open venue with an event bar – ideal for informal discussion, networking, poster sessions and evening drinks – and the Campus Genome Gallery. Off the main area are two medium-large meeting rooms (Rosalind Franklin and Barbara McClintock Pavilions) that can be set up in a variety of layouts, and two small loft meeting rooms upstairs.
Hinxton Hall compliments the modern Centre with three sumptuous period meeting rooms, lounges, a residents’ bar, and the Conference Centre Dining Room.

We are the main venue for Wellcome Genome Campus Advanced Courses and Scientific Conferences events, and our facilities are open for conferences and meetings bookings primarily – although not exclusively – from the biomedical sciences sector. As a sign of our commitment to scientific and medical progress, we offer preferential rates for clients from this sector.

The Conference Centre is part of Wellcome Genome Campus Connecting Science, providing meeting, networking and relaxation spaces conducive to learning and sharing.
