Kendal – the key to a successful conference

So why choose Kendal for the next conference, meeting or seminar? Well let’s start with location. It is just 15 minutes from junction 36 of the M6 meaning easy access for delegates travelling from the north or the south. Kendal also has a train station linking passengers directly with Oxenholme – The Lake District, a West Coast mainline station.

The “Auld Grey Town” is full of history and culture which certainly goes to promote successful and fulfilling conferences and seminars. Delegates can choose on down time to walk around Kendal or as it is the Gate to The Lakes, perhaps jump on the train to Windermere, around a 15 minute journey.

Heading out in the evening then Kendal has a choice of bars as well as The Brewery Arts Centre for film, theatre and music events.
