The Dante Alighieri premises, located at 62A Houghton Drive, Houghton, are in a beautiful heritage house, which it owns.

It comprises two equally spacious reception rooms, five classrooms equipped for teaching with desks, chairs, whiteboards, TV equipment, and internet connection, one of which also has a newly installed interactive multimedia whiteboard, and two outside rooms also equipped for teaching or watching videos.

On the lower ground floor it has an auditorium, with data projector and Hi-Fi audio-visual system, that can seat 120 people. Above this there is an open terrace of about 200m², with an ample view over Houghton, which can be used for functions hosting over 150 people.

Furthermore, the house has a modern, well equipped kitchen, which is of great value both for catering purposes and for offering culinary courses.

A vast garden and parking for over 40 cars frame the Dante’s pleasant site which has fast Wi-Fi connection throughout.



One can hire all or any part of our venue, including all the audio-visual equipment and Wi-Fi facilities, for meetings, conferences, cultural or commercial events; the elegant surroundings and spacious rooms make the venue also suitable for private functions: birthday parties, anniversaries, small wedding receptions, etc.

Catering can also be organised on request.
