Main Hall Exterior Side Image at Brackenhurst Campus

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, which was used as a hospital during the Great War, overlooks a lake and is pivotal to the campus with traditional dining rooms and beautiful lawns for outdoor receptions, marquees and team building events. By contrast, the Bramley building has purpose built modern classrooms and the Veterinary Centre has a unique combination of laboratories and classrooms available for exclusive hire.
