Please note: The Banbury Center is not located at the main CSHL campus.
Charles Robertson donated the estate to CSHL in 1976, and its seven-car garage was converted into the “Conference Room”, while the Georgian manor (Robertson) house and two large cottages (Meier House and Sammis Hall) provide accommodation for participants during meetings.
The Banbury Center is nestled on a 55-acre estate in the village of Lloyd Harbor, on the north shore of Long Island, about 5 miles from the main Laboratory campus at Cold Spring Harbor.
Banbury is convenient to both LaGuardia and John F. Kennedy airports, the Long Island Railroad (Huntington station), as well as the Long Island Expressway and Northern State Parkway.
All accommodations for Banbury meetings are arranged exclusively through the internal Banbury Center staff. Please do not share any personal information with any outside company.
Please note: Banbury meetings are dedicated to scientific discussions, and only invited participants stay here; we are unable to accommodate spouses or guests.
The Conference Room is fully equipped with projector and MacOS, Windows computers, and wireless network.
Participants walk outside between sessions and meals, and should pack outerwear/umbrellas as appropriate. Smoking is not permitted in any building.
Visits to the main Laboratory campus, the Book Store on the main campus, and the DNA Learning Center in Cold Spring Harbor Village can be arranged. Information about Long Island can be found at discoverlongisland.com
The Banbury Center purchases carbon offsets for participants who travel to our meetings. Learn more (pdf) about this effort.
