Hilton is to develop a franchise property at the Ageas Bowl / Southampton, England’s latest test match cricket venue and the home of Hampshire County Cricket Club. Expected to open in early 2014 it is part of an ongoing stadium development.
The upscale six-storey property will feature 171 rooms and four suites, many of which overlook the pitch. On match days, 85 of the rooms will double up as corporate hospitality venues offering guests a unique entertainment experience.
As well as attracting thousands of travelling spectators on match days and for concerts, The Ageas Bowl site is also ideally located for both business and leisure guests. Lying just off Junction 7 of the M27 Motorway (which links Southampton to London) and within easy reach of Southampton Parkway train station, it is an ideal venue for meetings and conferences. The hotel will feature 1,000sqm of events space, including a ballroom of 600sqm whilst the Ageas Bowl itself is already an established conferencing location. www.hilton.com
