Coach Road


Coalbrookdale is the setting for one of the UK’s unique, most diverse conference and events venues. For your The Engine Shop at Coalbrookdale offers a banqueting or exhibition space within a grade II listed building for up to 300 guests; the impressive ceiling height of this venue and vehicular access make it perfect for exhibitions and product launches as well as for banquets, weddings and performances.
On the same site you can enjoy a drinks reception on ‘The Green’ or in the extraordinarily striking'Covered Bays' which offers an earthy industrial atmosphere. ‘The Glass Classroom’ is, by comparison, a stylish modern space perfect for more intimate occasions. The last and smallest space available at our Coalbrookdale site is the elegant ‘Board Room’: The attractive oak flooring and magnificent cast-iron fireplace make it an ideal venue for your board meeting or working lunch, with the adjoining Members’ Room perfect for smaller meetings.
