The unique and award-winning attractions of RRS Discovery, Discovery Point and Verdant Works offer the ideal mix of modern corporate facilities in a convenient location, with a motivational insight into our rich heritage.
These inspiring venues will undoubtedly provide you with the setting for a successful and memorable conference or function.
Verdant Works is a beautifully restored Victorian Mill which lends itself perfectly as a venue for conferences, events and corporate entertaining. Each area within the building has unique features, stunning architecture and is extremely flexible. From the outside courtyard it is difficult to imagine the size and spaces available in this building so we would encourage you to make an appointment to come and view for yourself.
From the beautifully restored High Mill which is a spectacular event space for hosting dinners, weddings, performances and special events, to the enchanting Weavers Room which lends itself to conferences and smaller intimate dinners, there are so many adaptable spaces within the Verdant Works complex to utilise.
Our friendly and efficient Conference Management Team has the experience and expertise to ensure that your event runs smoothly.
Their valuable knowledge allows us to meet all your requirements and will guide you in your decisions throughout the planning stages and assist you on the day of your event. Ensuring the smooth running of your event is our priority.
To ensure all of our visitors have a safe and enjoyable visit we have made several changes. Read more here.
