The Foundation Building is on the edge of the Eden site and with its functional architecture it provides the perfect atmosphere for doing business.

The suite available for hire consists of a seminar room and two training rooms. The training rooms are separated by a temporary dividing wall for smaller meetings or can be opened up into one room to provide a larger conference area.

The Core building is close to the Biomes, and features the Film Room and the Core Suite, which can be used for business meetings and conference breakout spaces.

The Core building is closed until 25 May 2018 (except for school trips) while it’s refurbished for our exciting new Invisible Worlds exhibit. Thanks for bearing with us.
