Worcester College

Worcester College was founded in 1714 and occupies a 26-acre site on the western side of the city where the Benedictines first founded Gloucester College in 1283. Some of the original buildings of the earlier college have survived, new buildings have been added and the resulting mixture of architectural styles together with the beautiful gardens, lake and sports field attracts conference participants from across the world. The mainline rail and coach stations are within a five-minute walk.

The college offers full residential conferences for up to 250 delegates in single en-suite study accommodation.  All bedrooms have ethernet access points, telephones and a fridge. Day meetings can be accommodated all year round in the Linbury and Nash buildings and, during vacations, we are able to offer additional smaller meeting and breakout rooms.
