Simpson Room

Click Thumbnails to Enlarge

Taking its name from the building’s architect, Benjamin Simpson, the Simpson Room is one of our largest spaces on offer. Located on the Third Floor, the room is unique in layout and can cater for conferences of up to 60 delegates. With additional space to one side, it is particularly suited to meetings and seminars that include exhibition stands, registration and/or a buffet lunch. It also works extremely well in conjunction with the Tramways Suite for larger conferences requiring breakout space.The Simpson Room has windows on three sides, providing plenty of natural light as well as extensive views across the city and quayside. While enjoying refreshments, delegates will be able to see the whole range of iconic city architecture; from the Tyne Bridge and historic Castle Keep, to the modern marvel of the Sage Gateshead.

As with all our rooms, the Simpson package includes room equipment and Wi-Fi free of charge. We can also include a PA system for larger events at no additional cost.
