Riddel Hall


Contemporary meets traditional in one world-class venue. A self-contained conference centre set in a magnificent 13-acre site, Riddel Hall features an array of adaptable meeting spaces, with its own dedicated events staff and on-site catering.


Riddel Hall
The centrepiece of the site is the original Grade 2-listed red brick building, which has been sympathetically renovated to retain many original features while incorporating the best of today’s technology. The beautiful lawns and grounds provide plentiful outdoor space in the heart of the city, ideal for conference breaks, team building, social gatherings and marquee set-up. Riddel Hall also has free limited on-site parking for delegates based on a first come, first served basis.
