Downing College, dating from the early 1800s, has a unique setting amidst 20 acres of lawns and trees and yet it is within half a mile of the historic centre of Cambridge. While the college itself is quiet and peaceful, a short walk brings you to the very heart of the city, making Downing an ideal location for visitors on a leisure break or in Cambridge on business.
All of the bedrooms we have available are ensuite and either overlook the Main Court lawns, West Lodge Gardens or the beautiful Maitland Library. The rooms are used by undergraduate students during term time but are fully equipped for the modern day traveller, with facilities such as a flat screen TV and a spacious desk with free broadband internet connection. A telephone, alarm clock, hairdryer and tea and coffee making facilities are also provided, and rooms are cleaned daily by the College ‘bedders’.
Free parking is normally available within the college; please state in the Additional Information section of the booking form if you require parking.
Please note: We are unable to accept bookings for Stag and Hen parties.
