Victoria Rooms

If you need a lot of space to hold a conference, or just like the idea of a meeting room in a grand old building, the Victoria Rooms could be just what you are looking for.

This impressive building which dominates the top of Queens Road was built in 1841 in a classical Greek revival style with a dramatic Corinthian portico supported by eight columns.‌

Now home to the University’s Music Department, the Victoria Rooms is in demand for conferences, as it has a 665 seat auditorium and several function rooms, including a lecture theatre and a recital room which can both accommodate 150. That means the space is versatile. Holding an exhibition to accompany a conference is just one of the options. The  auditorium is 418 square metres, the recital room is 139 square metres and the lecture room offers a further 119 square metres, which all adds up to a great deal of potential!

The Victoria Rooms has seen many important events throughout its history, from the ceremonial dinner to mark the opening of the Clifton Suspension Bridge, to readings by Charles Dickens and Oscar Wilde. Now your conference could follow this tradition of important events at this venue.
