Just a heartbeat away from the centre of Leeds, the museum is easily reached by public transport and car, and has ample on-site parking facilities.

An exceptional venue

Our dedicated and experienced conference and events team will ensure your event runs smoothly from start to finish.

“Thank you again for your wonderful hospitality last night, the event was a big success and our attendees were very impressed with the venue. The food was amazing and no job was too small for Natasha who was the perfect host.”  Healthwatch Leeds, 2017

Optional extras, including talks about our work, the history of medicine or our collections can be arranged.

Modern facilities

Our attractively themed conference suite reflects the fascinating museum collections, providing an interesting talking point for delegates and guests.

The suite comprises five adaptable light and airy rooms that can be configured to suit individual requirements.
