Catering for Up to 4,000 People

A Number of Options to Suit Your Needs

The conference facilities have been designed to meet the exacting requirements of numerous European Presidencies for which the Castle has often been the focal point. There are facilities catering for two to 4,000 delegates across nine exclusive venues.

Our smallest venue, Bedford Hall, is a self-contained suite of rooms located in the Bedford Tower in the upper courtyard. It is ideal for conferences, boardroom meetings or press conferences with up to eighty attendees. Our newest and largest facility is the Printworks located in the lower courtyard. It offers an unrivalled location for trade shows, conventions, exhibitions, product launches, concerts and conferences. There are also external spaces available which can be hired for live music or theatre events.
