As the Royal Society celebrates its 350th anniversary this year it has launched Chicheley Hall a prestigious residential conference centre outside of Milton Keynes in Buckinghamshire, that operates as Kavil Royal Society International Centre.
The centres prime purpose is an extension of the Royal Society’s London facilities as a centre for scientific discussion and the resolution of major scientific issues.
Outside of its scientific activity the centre is available to be hired for conference and meetings, dinners, receptions, and teambuilding activities for organisations that require a special venue and service set in attractive grounds with tranquillity.
The facilities at Chicheley Hall are extensive, 4 meeting rooms, 2 lecture halls, 47 en suite bedrooms and all set in 80 acres of grounds including lake and formal gardens.
It is refreshing to see the bedrooms do not include the traditional widescreen television, preferring to provide a relaxing environment and free wireless internet connection to support the prime objective of most guests.
The Royal Society have invested £11m in the redevelopment programme in addition to the £6.5m purchase price to create this very special conference centre that will serve us all for many years to come.
