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.
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.

The Council Room has been used for the Society's Council meetings since 1930.
The Map Room is part of the Society's neo-classical extension, which was commissioned in 1930. Its proportions mirror those of the original Lowther Lodge, built in the 1870s.
The Sunley Room is ideal for small meetings and is often hired with the Drayson Room to provide a separate break out or catering area.
Originally Lady Wesleydale's bedroom, and later part of the Society's library, the Lowther Room is ideal for small quiet meetings.
