Whitworth Hall and Council Chamber

The neo-Gothic Grade II listed Whitworth Building is a real Manchester treasure. We offer this elegant venue for meetings for up to 675 and banquets for up to 300. Adjoining the Whitworth Hall is the imposing Council Chamber and nearby are six boardrooms seating 12 to 24 delegates adjacent to Christies Bistro. For further information including room hire prices for Whitworth Hall and the Council Chamber see our conference website.
