A brand-new events space The Vortex has recently opened at the five-star Seaham Hall, on Durham’s Heritage Coast.

The Vortex offers corporate clients a new multi-use zone to inspire creative thinking. Accommodating up to 40 guests, it can easily be transformed from a more typical meeting room to a less conventional and inspirational space that’s conducive to free-flowing exchange of ideas between colleagues and clients.

The Vortex at Seaham Hall

The Vortex boasts state-of-the-art in-built AV facilities, including a smart TV which is hidden by artwork when not in use. Seaham Hall has worked closely with designer Louise James of Koncept ID to create a space that is both stimulating and professional. Inspiration has been taken directly from the iconic water feature at the front of the hotel that shares its name with the new space; the vortex of swirling water is replicated in the bespoke carpet design. The hotel’s location by the sea is reflected in the wallpaper, which features illustrations of giant jellyfish. All is combined with a slick contemporary twist on a grand Georgian Break-Front bookcase, which houses games and puzzles such as Connect 4 and Rubik’s cubes, and conceals a drinks fridge and technical equipment, while complementing the impressive historical context of the building.

In addition to the new events space, following recently-established partnerships with two local companies – Valley Adventures and Karting North East –Seaham Hall can now offer a wide range of team-building activities, including falconry, treasure hunts, bush craft and cookery classes. In addition, Valley Adventures offers archery, paddle-boarding, surfing, scavenger hunts, coastal discovery days, orienteering, circus skills, military-style assault courses and raft building, while Karting North East offers professional Karting experiences, plus paintball, rage rally, archery, tomahawks and off-road 4x4 driving.
