Staying Here


You should note that Banbury Center meetings are dedicated to scientific discussions and only the invited participants stay here; we are unable to accommodate spouses or guests.

Participants must recognize the special character of the Center and not expect some of the amenities found in hotels, for example rooms do not have televisions.

Smoking is not permitted in any building.

The Conference Room is fully equipped with audio-visual aids (including computer, slide and overhead projectors), a wireless network and a high-quality recording system. The offices are equipped with fax machine, word processing facilities and photocopier. A transcription service is available (at extra cost). There is a small library that has a variety of books and important journals.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner are eaten in Robertson House, and coffee breaks are taken in the library of the Conference Room. The three buildings are within 5 minutes walk of each other.

There is a tennis court and swimming pool for use in the summer months. The grounds of the estate and the area of Lloyd Habor are suitable for jogging.
