Rural location

Brackenhurst Campus is located in the rural village of Southwell, within 500 acres of beautiful Nottinghamshire countryside, bursting with greenery, woodlands and water creating the perfect rural setting for conferences, meetings and events.

The historic Brackenhurst Hall has a traditional dining room and beautiful lawns for outdoor receptions, marquees and team building events; by contrast, the Bramley Building has purpose built modern classrooms for meetings and breakout space. Our brand new venue, the Lyth Building, in the heart of the campus, will offer exhibition space for large conferences and events, meeting rooms and dedicated dining and networking spaces.
