Skelton Grange Environment Centre, three miles from Leeds city centre, is an attractive, inspiring and eco-friendly venue for conferences, meetings and events. Set in ten acres of land, the centre gives the feeling of being in the countryside, providing a relaxing alternative to the hustle and bustle of the city.
The centre is a showcase for environmental building, with many features designed to minimise the use of resources. The building is fully accessible and set in lovely grounds managed for conservation and education purposes. It is only a couple of minutes from the M1, M62 and M621, as well as the Sustrans Trans Pennine cycle route, and we have lots of free parking for cars and bikes.
The income from you booking our centre for your meeting or event will, in turn, support the charitable work of The Conservation Volunteers at Skelton Grange.
Conferencing and Meeting Rooms
Skelton Grange Environment Centre has several rooms available for hire, and we are delighted to offer a 10% discount for voluntary sector and community groups.

It is also possible to hire out the entire centre.
