Introduction

Corn Exchange

The Grade II Listed Corn Exchange is the largest event space in the centre of Cambridge offering capacity for up to 1400. The flexible auditorium offers a variety of seating options including theatre style, cabaret and tiered, as well as a completely blank canvas of 456 square metres for exhibitions. The other rooms in the venue offer registration and breakout spaces for large scale conferences.

The Corn Exchange can also be used in conjunction with the other site, the Guildhalls. Located directly opposite, the Guildhalls provide additional breakout spaces. Accommodation and formal dining can be found in venues close-by including the Cambridge Colleges to provide an excellent solution for large conferences.

Guildhall

Situated in the centre of the historic university city of Cambridge, the Guildhalls offer some of the largest and very best conference facilities in the region. The spaces are impressive examples of Victorian and 1930s architecture, combined with 21st Century technology, offering several flexible spaces to accommodate conferences, exhibitions, trade fairs, civil ceremonies and wedding receptions - whether for 14 or 500 people.

Thanks for all your help. This was the first time I have used your service and although it was only a small request, I was absolutely delighted with the outcome. Not only did I receive fast responses and plenty of options, some of the providers were able to offer very competitive rates compared to the corporate 'business centre' rates I had initially been looking at. It would have taken me so long to find out all of that on my own - and if I need to book a room for a similar event in the future, I will come back to you. Thank you.
