Graduate Cambridge rests in the heart of the city

Graduate Cambridge rests in the heart of the city, but is tucked away just off Mill Lane on the banks of the River Cam, a stone’s throw from Scudamore’s punting. Modern and bold, the front exterior of the hotel stands out amongst the Gothic buildings the city is known for, while still maintaining Cambridge’s quirky charm. Guests can step through the front doors to be met with a space paying homage to its roots, relishing in the hotel’s quiet luxury and eclectic style.

Following a complete interior renovation that includes all rooms, common spaces, fitness club and the pool, Graduate Cambridge’s interiors are made up of colour, patterns and textures that reflect the green surroundings of the pastoral English countryside. Guest rooms see splashes of ‘Cambridge Blue’, and key design details include wallpaper depicting school gates, striking wood and leather desks. The event spaces, thanks to the floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the river, are light and bright, with bold design choices.

Graduate Cambridge’s crowning glory is its Garden Terrace overlooking the River Cam. Guests can relax on comfy, classic chairs while enjoying the punts go by with a beer or cocktail from the Garden Bar. Blue and white striped parasols dot the garden, and across the river guests can look out at the green fields of Cambridgeshire where cows come to graze.

Restaurant at Graduate Cambridge Celebrate in style
The riverside gardens are an intimate gathering space situated next to the River Cam, so couples can have an exquisite celebration while watching the punts glide by and the British countryside flourish.

Alternatively, the River Suite provides an inspiring backdrop for the special day with views of the River Cam. Its striking floor-to-ceiling windows and access to the riverside garden make for a romantic wedding ceremony, reception, or banquet.

Couples can say ‘I do’ in the Riverside Garden Gazebo while the punts glide by for a quintessentially Cambridge ceremony.

The Cayley Suite is a romantic space overlooking the River Cam that opens directly onto the riverside garden and can be accessed through the Garden House bar.

Receptions are held in a choice of six spaces, capable of accommodating between 220 and 40 people.

We love...
The venue’s river location and charming ceremony spaces.
