Rutland Water Venue Hire

Room Hire at Rutland Environmental Education Centre 

The Anglian Water Rutland Environmental Education Centre is centrally located, with easy access from Rutland, Oakham, Stamford, Leicester, Nottingham, Peterborough and further afield.

It serves as a peaceful backdrop to your event, offering stunning views over the nature reserve and across the lagoons, which evolve all the time as plant life changes with the seasons and species migrate.

What can we use it for?

We’re well-equipped for a wide range of functions, meetings and events, including:

  • training seminars
  • team meetings
  • presentations
  • courses
  • AGMs
  • lectures
  • children’s parties
  • celebrations
  • and much more.

What’s the set-up like?

Depending on the needs of your event, we can arrange seating in a number of ways. We can seat up to 60 for a presentation or lecture, for example, or arrange a board meeting for up to 30 people.

Or, if you’re looking for something a little more intimate or private, there’s a small meeting room accommodating six people.

You’ll have access to a range of audio visual equipment and teas and coffees are available throughout your visit.

There are disabled facilities close at hand in the building, including a hearing loop, and your delegates won’t have a problem with parking.

And, as an optional extra, our wardens give guided walks of the nature reserve. Pre-booking is, however, essential, so be sure to book early.

Unfortunately, we’re not set up to provide in-house catering but you are welcome to make your own arrangements.

We can put you in touch with a choice of quality local caterers or make arrangements with one on your behalf. Tell us well in advance, give us a guide budget per head and we’ll deal with the rest.
