Cambridge Corn Exchange and Guildhalls

A unique, historical and flexible conference space in the heart of the city of Cambridge

Located in one of the most famous cities in the world, the Cambridge Corn Exchange and Guildhalls are impressive examples of Victorian architecture, situated in the city centre, less than two minutes’ walk from the famous King’s College and the River Cam.

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 456m2 for exhibitions. The other rooms in the venue offer registration and breakout spaces for large scale conferences. 

 "All of the staff were brilliant, very attentive and I thought the  whole set up worked really well for us, there isn't a lot I'd change!"      

    - Lindsay Walker, Cambridge Silicon Radio Ltd  Conference, May 2015


Additional space

 

 

The Corn Exchange can also be used in conjunction with the historical Guildhalls directly opposite which offer two further large, flexible spaces for catering and additional breakout spaces. We regularly work with the University to provide accommodation and formal dining opportunities to create large-scale, multi-site conferencing opportunities.
