The Beacon Portal

The Beacon Portal


The Beacon Portal offers a uniquely situated meeting space for business, community and educational usage. This space offers West Cumbria a top class venue for business, set against Whitehaven’s harbour as a stunning backdrop.

The building encompasses two rooms each capable of seating up to 60 people in different formats. The ground floor also includes an open veranda with retractable bi-fold door system, providing an added dimension to your event. High speed internet, visual display and in house catering facilities are all available.

The Beacon Portal has two things that no other venue can boast- a location that is truly memorable and representative of Copeland at its finest, and a connection to the Beacon Museum; the beating heart of Copeland’s heritage and history.

If you are interested in using this space for corporate or social events please do get in touch.
