St John's College, Cambridge

St John’s College celebrated its 500th Anniversary in 2011. The College was founded on the site of the 13th century Hospital of St John in Cambridge, expanding over the subsequent five hundred years to become the largest of the Oxford and Cambridge Colleges by area.

St John's has magnificent gardens and extends onto the famous Cambridge Backs beyond the River Cam, with its courts connected by the beautiful Bridge of Sighs. Although the Main Gate of the College leads right into the heart of the city, the College courts provide a serene and peaceful environment for guests.

The Bed and Breakfast offers bedrooms in recently refurbished rooms situated in North Court ,Chapel and in Third Court. These rooms accommodate students during Term time. Both twin and single rooms are available and all have ensuite facilities. The twin rooms have separate beds in different rooms and connected with a small lounge.

The college has been awarded a 4* rating by Enjoy England, for the last three years, the last audit being in September 2018 by Visit Engand.

Very good value for Central Cambridge, and fascinating to see behind the doors of a Cambridge College.

Very friendly staff

Fantastic experience! Not cheap, but an amazing place to stay. No pots, pans or microwave, so plan on dining out or at the Buttery (which is excellent!)
