Coordinates: 51°24′04″N 0°38′28″W / 51.401°N 0.641°W / 51.401; -0.641 Sunningdale Park is a meeting and conference venue in Sunningdale, Berkshire that is run by De Vere Venues.

In grounds of 65 acres (26 ha) there is a Grade II listed neo-Georgian mansion called Northcote House, which was built in 1930, and in which notable features include the grand staircase and front portico. Within the grounds there are gardens and a lake, a restaurant, lecture theatres, training rooms, a swimming pool and 272 bedrooms in accommodation blocks. The ill-fated Sunningdale Agreement on power-sharing in Northern Ireland was signed in Northcote House on 9 December 1973.

The site housed the National School of Government, which provided training, organisational development and consultancy courses for UK civil servants and private individual learners until its closure in March 2012.[1] It then housed the privately managed Civil Service College.[2] In March 2015, the College of Policing opened an office in the Albert Day building.[3]

Sunningdale Park was sold to Audley Retirement and Berkeley Homes in December 2016.[4]

The landscaped park and gardens are Grade II listed on the Register of Historic Parks and Gardens.[5]
