#33 of 86 in Cambridge
Downing College, dating from the early 1800s, has a unique setting amidst 20 acres of lawns and trees. While the college environment itself is quiet and peaceful, the museums, shops and River Cam in the very heart of Cambridge is only a few minutes’ walk away. Downing College is an ideal location for visitors on a leisure break or in Cambridge on business.

Attended a wedding celebration last weekend and I was completely wowed by everything. The rooms are spacious and have everything you need, the grounds are extensive and so peaceful (you actually forget you’re in the centre of the city!), the breakfast was amazing, such good quality and generous portions, although could maybe use a few more continental/cold items. Throughout our stay the events team made everything perfect and seamless (even with the unfortunate weather!) and would definitely recommend this for smaller parties or large events. Thank you for such an amazing weekend!
