A new, state of the art conference centre has opened in Taunton. The 600 capacity building is one of the largest new conference facilities in the South West and occupies a premium site at Somerset County Cricket Club with fantastic views of the pitch.
Taunton is one of the best connected locations in Somerset and the South West. The town is served by a mainline station (1hr 40mins from London Paddington), the M5 motorway and is less than an hours drive to two international airports. The new conference centre takes full advantage of this with plenty of parking and just a 10 minute walk from the train station.
In addition to its unrivalled sporting location, the conference centre at Somerset County Cricket Club also boasts a large screen projector, roving microphones and a split level PA system, while the in-house catering provides delicious menus tailored to individual requirements. And with a wide range of accommodation nearby, from budget hotels to the award winning Castle Hotel, and a good selection of great places to eat and drink, delegates can be assured of an enjoyable evening when the days work is done.
Richard Gould, Chairman of Somerset County Cricket Club, said: The County Room and Long Room development have provided Somerset Cricket Club and Taunton with a peerless Conference and Banqueting facility to rival any in the South West peninsula.
Taunton is currently undergoing a 1 billion town centre regeneration programme and the new conference centre is an important element of this.
Ian Franklin, Project Director of Project Taunton, said: This is an exceptional new asset for Taunton and the region. Businesses and organisations now have a high quality, good value and easily accessible conference venue in the heart of the South West.
