Hilton at The Ageas Bowl

Hold your next business meeting or event at the home of Hampshire cricket. The Hilton at the Ageas Bowl in Southampton is an esteemed venue for weddings and celebrations, particularly with fans of the game, but with a top capacity of 700 guests it’s also a place to impress for conferences, product launches, training days, awards presentations, networking receptions, banquets and smaller executive meetings.

The hotel is set in the 150 acres of landscaped grounds that surround the Ageas Bowl and include a fabulous 18-hole golf course; with that and the cricket there are plenty of opportunities for team building days and corporate hospitality. Let’s look at the event space at the Hilton at the Ageas Bowl: on the ground floor is the Ageas Ballroom, 47 metres long and accommodating up to 700 people. It’s incredibly versatile and can even be easily partitioned for smaller events or to provide break out or reception space. On the second floor, holding up to 120 guests is the Ageas Media Centre, light and airy with full height windows and views over the Ageas Bowl and the woodland beyond. Perfect for discreet conflabs for up to 12 executives is the Boardroom on the upper ground floor; it overlooks the golf course and has doors that open onto a terrace.

Rooms are swish and modern, you’ll have complimentary superfast wi-fi, cutting-edge audio-visual technology, and a dedicated events team to assist you from the planning stages right to the end of your function. Bespoke catering comes via creative on-site chefs who offer a range of menus to suit all occasions. Day Delegate Rates are competitively priced, and the venue offers a Conferencing Cricket package for up to 180 people, allowing you to combine your meeting with any of Hampshire’s domestic cricket matches.

The 171 bedrooms overlook the bowl or golf course, and are modern in style with blackout curtains, free wifi and an in-room media hub. Any hunger pangs can be fixed in the Lakeview Sports Bar or at BEEFY’S bar and restaurant, whilst post conference stress can be banished with a work out in the gym or a visit to the on-site spa.

The Hilton at the Ageas Bowl has ample parking and is just minutes from the M27; the nearest train station is under 2 miles away, Southampton Airport is around 3.5 miles distant, and travel from Gatwick takes about 90 minutes.
