Lake District Conference Venues

Choose one of our dedicated Lake District conference venues for your next business event and host a conference with a view.

A Conference with a view

England's Lake District, recently made a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is widely regarded as being one of the most beautiful parts of this sceptred isle, with it's wild, rugged fells, characterful valleys and many tarns and meres.

The Lake District's close proximity to the M6 and being only a short journey from some of the major towns and cities of the North West of England make it an ideal location to consider as a venue when planning your next meeting or conference.

"Now more than ever we seem to be living lives where we’re busy and overworked, and our research shows that if we’d take some time out for reflection, we might be better off"
Gino Pisano, Harvard Business School

 A place to reflect

Time away from the desk and the usual, familiar work surroundings can be the first step towards a conference experience that can make a real difference. Throw into the mix the timeless surroundings of the Lake District and you have the makings of a potent blend, all aiding the time to reflect and learn.

English Lakes have three conference venues in the Lake District, all within a short distance of one another in the Windermere and Ambleside area of the South Lakes. Each of our venues offers a distinctly unique conference experience yet each one offers the same high standard of service that conference organisers have come to expect from English Lakes. We’ve got years of experience in turning any event into a successful one.
