Group visits can be booked in advance giving visitors the opportunity to visit the treasures of the library which were collected over Pepys’s lifetime and still preserved in the original oak bookcases designed by Pepys in 1666.
Private Dining in a Historic Cambridge College
Delve deeper into Cambridge’s academic history and traditions by experiencing a private dinner in a Cambridge College! Enjoy pre-dinner drinks in a range of stunning settings with plenty of photo opportunities, followed by a sumptuous meal and fine wines, guaranteed to suit every diner’s requirements.
With access to areas not generally open to the public, this is a unique and memorable way to entertain key clients, reward staff or simply celebrate in style. Bespoke menus are created by in-house teams and offered with fine wines from the College cellars. Guests are waited on by experienced butlers in ancient, majestic halls, some lit only by candlelight, or in historic dining rooms with warming open fires.
Looking to elevate the experience? Consider a chauffeured punt to transport guests directly to the venue over a glass of champagne. Many of the Colleges also offer the opportunity of a tour before dinner or perhaps an expert after-dinner speaker could be the perfect end to your first day.
After breakfast, it's time to leave the stunning surroundings of what we like to think is one of England's best small cities! If you can't bear to tear the group away why not take a detour to another location on the way back?
