Room Hire in York

If you are looking for room hire in York, Conferences@Wilberforce offers a smart, modern small conference centre only 15 minutes by car from the historic city centre, or 5 minutes or less from the northern York outer ring road (A1037).  There is secure, on-site parking but if you are not traveling by car there is a regular bus service to our door from York city centre or close to the rail station (no.5).

Conference room

The main conference room can accommodate up to 40 people theatre style or around 20 seated at tables, not including a speaker’s table at the front.


Facilities for our room hire in York include Wi-Fi access to internet and a hearing loop, and the whole centre is fully accessible to people with a disability, being especially suitable for people with a visual impairment and additional disabilities.

There is a small service kitchen and contact can be given with local caterers. There are dedicated toilet facilities including a disabled toilet.

Other rooms and hiring

Although not part of the conference suite, another large room (the Skills Room) can be made available for room hire in York. This includes a comprehensively-equipped open plan kitchen specially adapted for use by people with a visual impairment and/or other disabilities.

The conference facility has its own dedicated entrance so conferences need not be restricted to Wilberforce office working hours and can, eg, be used at weekends.

Any of the rooms can be hired on an individual basis if not previously booked, for more information see:

To request a booking for more than one room for an event, please use the room hire page.
