Info about Downing College

Downing College sits amidst 20 acres of lawns and trees, yet it is within half a mile of the historic centre of Cambridge. The buildings date back to the beginning of the 19th century and are predominantly neo-classical in style conveying a sense of elegance and spaciousness. Downing College offers a flexible venue with facilities suitable for conferences, meetings, Weddings, Gala Dinners and Private Dining. We also provide accommodation to suit a range of budgets.

Downing College is an idyllic venue for your Wedding day. With a combination of beautiful architecture, tranquil gardens and landscaping, our wedding couples can relax and enjoy their day knowing they are in safe and experienced hands.


The Howard Building offers a classical and elegant venue for your Civil Ceremony. The Assembly Room, which is situated on the first floor, is a spacious room with decorative scrolls, an abundance of natural light and a balcony overlooking the West Lodge Garden. Situated on the ground floor is the Drawing Room with patio doors opening out on to the West Lodge Garden. An ideal area for a drinks reception and photographs following your ceremony.


Couples have the opportunity to enjoy their Wedding Breakfast in our stunning neo-classical College Hall. Seating up to 168 guests, you can dine in a beautiful, vibrant and warm room filled with rich character. After your four course Wedding Breakfast is served, we invite our guests to then enjoy a drinks reception in the Senior Combination Room and the Fellows Garden to further unwind before the Hall is transformed into an evening entertainment venue.
