Academic events

Charles Darwin House understands what makes a successful academic event; whether that is a one day workshop, or an event with a programme running over several days. In addition to the large Charles Darwin Lecture Theatre (capacity of 130), there are several other rooms for hire, which provide space for networking and trade exhibition displays.

The conference suite is an ideal location to host poster sessions and evening receptions. Charles Darwin House has integral poster boards which provide space for up to 67 posters. The poster boards are spread out over several rooms which give the opportunity to display posters in individual sessions. View poster boards.

Charles Darwin House is located within close proximity of key London universities and other scientific establishments. At just a 15 minute walk away from King's Cross station, there are excellent transport links with other cities in the UK, and easy access to the major London based airports including Heathrow, Gatwick, Stansted and Luton.
