Conference Meeting Facilities & Venue Hire

Gilbert White & The Oates Collections is delighted to be able to offer two rooms within the 18th century house, once the home of Rev. Gilbert White (1720-1793), for corporate or private events.  Set in the heart of the pretty village of Selborne, we offer a unique and charming setting for conferences, meetings, presentations and training sessions. We are only 5 miles from Alton, an hour from Waterloo by train, and ideally located between the A3 and A31.



Details of our current Conference Meeting Facilities & Venue Hire along with associated costs and booking form can be obtained by contacting our events team.

Those who have attended conferences and events at the Museum have this to say about it:

“Delegates at our tourism conference last month were delighted with the Gilbert White Field Studies Centre. It made an ideal venue, helping to ensure an inspiring event, since it is not a featureless event space but a beautifully restored barn.

Organisation for the event was superb, and staff could not have been more helpful in making sure everything ran smoothly. Catering from the Gilbert White tea parlour was of a very high standard. The space has been well designed, so would be suitable for a variety of events – it certainly makes an excellent conference venue.”
