Set in 812 acres of beautiful parkland, the course is centred on the imposing grandeur of the 1762 Grade II-Listed building Brandling House and boasts unrivalled facilities to accommodate corporate events from seminars to major conferences.

It has hosted many events from major international political conferences to one-to-one meetings. But all occasions benefit from first class service and attention to detail, and all are set against the stunning and atmospheric backdrop of a renowned sporting venue.

It regularly caters for such blue-chip names as Greggs plc, Lloyds TSB, Legal and General, Procter and Gamble and Rotary International.

Recently, the Racecourse even hosted a three-day summit for European security ministers, including the then British Home Secretary Charles Clarke.

On other occasions it has hosted product launches, filming and photographic assignments, exhibitions and trade shows and team-building events.

It is conveniently located for Newcastle International Airport, only minutes from Newcastle City Centre and adjacent to the A1 and A19. It also offers free parking for 12,000 cars and it is within a few minutes' walk of two hotels.
