Cambridge información para los huéspedes

Cambridge visitor information

With Cambridge, the word unique takes on a new meaning. Founded as a University in 1209, the city today has preserved much of its outstanding beauty and original character as a quiet place of thought.

Visit Cambridge to wander among its narrow medieval streets or “The Backs”, the outstanding series of college gardens and grounds that lead down to the river. Study architecture of every period and of almost every century, and inspect the University’s many important literary, artistic, and scientific treasures. Some ideas include ghost walks, MP3 guided walks, visiting the Fitzwilliam Museum and of course, no visit to Cambridge is complete without punting down the River Cam!

“Such a balance of garden and building, of shape and form, of peace, quiet and constantly changing scene is only achieved once in the world” (R Tibbs, 1972).

It should be understood that colleges are designed primarily for students: not for children or adults expecting a high level of luxury. However, with this in mind, the colleges do meet level of comfort that we expect most visitors to be happy with, and we will welcome any feedback where this is not the case.

Historia de Cambridge

Cambridge history


Whilst Cambridge possibly existed in Roman times, and grew into a Norman market town (the name of the town mutated from Grentabrige or Cantebrigge (Grantbridge) its University has made it was it is today.

The University was formed 1209 when a group of Oxford scholars moved to the town to escape the violence prevelent in Oxford at the time. But even in these days the University was having problems of discipline (!). Students belonged to no particular body, were not responsible to any person and came and went in an irregular manner. By 1231 Cambridge students were sufficient in numbers and apparently so unruly that Henry III issued a number of writs for the punishment of the disorderly.

It was the solutions to these disciplinary problems, thought up by Hugh de Balsham, Bishop of Ely from 1257 to 1286 that was to sow the seeds of todays college system. He placed the scholars (now known as the "scholars of the Bishop of Ely") in two houses next to the Church of St Peter on the Trumpington Road. This became known as "The House of St Peter" and thus gradually the college system began to evolve, and Peterhouse, the first Cambridge college, was born.

In 1318 the University was officially baptised with a Papal Bull from Pope John XXII. Other colleges followed soon after: Trinity college (originally called Michaelhouse) was founded in 1324 by the Chancellor of the Exchequer of the time, Hervey de Stanton, and Clare college, originally called University Hall, was next in 1326. Pembroke college was founded in 1347 by the wife of the Eearl of Pembroke and the following year, Edward Gonville founded a college of his own which came to be known as Gonville Hall: this was then refounded by Dr John Caius in 1557 to give us Gonville and Caius.

Most colleges were founded by wealthy individuals from the Church, Government or landowners. Corpus Christi, founded in 1352, is unusual in that it is the only college which sprang directly from members of the town. Christopher Marlow, Shakespeare's famous contemporary, was a student at the college and one can still see his rooms in the old court.

King's College founded in the fifteenth century: Henry VI intended it to form part of a double foundation with Eton and in doing this there is some evidence that he was repeating the plan of William of Wykeham, who had founded Winchester and New College, Oxford. Queens' was founded by Margaret of Anjou, wife of Henry VI, and later, William IV's wife Elizabeth Woodville became a co-founder (thus Queens' rather than Queen's). This has not unnaturally be described as the first outward symbol of the reconciliation of the houses of York and Lancaster.

The fifteen century also brought two other colleges: John Alcock, the then Bishop of Ely, founded Jesus in 1469 and Robert Wodelark, a Provost of Kings College, founded St Catharine's in 1473.

Now with 31 colleges, the University has gradually grown in size, stature and influence on the world: its graduates have reached the highest levels in science, the Church, government, and business throughout the world.

The only negative was street noise from this particular room. I am not sure if it was noise from the pub near by but noise from folk partying and car doors slamming was a problem till after 1am. Other than that it is a beautiful place to stay and I would happily return but ask for a quieter room.

Have nothing to complain about, everything was good, the people concerned were helpful, shame we did not have much time to spend in Cambridge. Stephanie & Rienzie

If you're tired of hotels & want something different then a stay at Downing College is a must. Great location in central Cambridge, rooms with a lot of character & an amazing breakfast every morning. Would highly recommend.

(Comentarios de Downing College, Cambridge)

the cleaning personnel would try to come in the room and clean too early in the morning. after breakfast i'd go into my room around 8.30 and they'd already be in there. i'd suggest a different schedule or signs one can put on the door.

This was one of the nicest hotel stays of my life. Can you imagine this - a little suite above the Bridge of Sighs for less than $100/night? Truly wonderful. And, despite the age of the building - everything worked!

(Comentarios de St John's College, Cambridge)

Quiet and peaceful even on a Saturday night in the town centre. Meticulously clean, including the kitchen facilities. I would have appreciated a disposable bathcap!

(Comentarios de Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge)

The porters at the college were absolutely lovely and could not have been more helpful. The rooms were clean and great value. Lovely to stay in such a beautiful building.

(Comentarios de St Catharine's College, Cambridge)

We liked to stay on this huge campus and will come back, when we plan a next trip to GB. However we would have appreciated some more comfort in the bathroom: we tried hard but were not successfull in fixing the showerhose to the tap and the pump system for the toilet was extremely loud.

(Comentarios de Churchill College, Cambridge)

Porters at the Lodge very helpful. It was nice to have dressing gowns, slippers and good toiletries during our stay. Breakfast was really good and taken in impressive surroundings.
