The Education Centre was originally the drawing room of Lowther Lodge when it was a family home before becoming our Map Room for 90 years.
Today the Education Centre is a large, modern room with high quality audio visual equipment and an air handling system.
The Education Centre is a large versatile room which seats up to 100 for conferences and meetings.
Equipped with data and slide projection facilities, a PA system (with microphone) and an induction loop for the hard of hearing, the room is flexible and works well with lower numbers.
Two sets of doors lead to the adjoining hall which is used for refreshment breaks, and the Education Centre also opens on to the garden terrace.
