Bridge of Sighs

A combination of the traditional and the modern, the 16th and 17th Century courts blend attractively with the 20th Century Cripps and Fisher Buildings. The renowned Bridge of Sighs leads to the 19th Century Gothic New Court which stands at the end of an expanse of grass and trees beside the river.

St John’s College is one of the largest of the University’s residential Colleges. The serene atmosphere of the ancient courts is complemented by the comfort, spaciousness and convenience of its modern accommodation. The Fisher Building, opened during the summer of 1988, has several meetings rooms and a large 250 seat lecture theatre, all of which are equipped with the very latest audio-visual and presentation technology.

The College prides itself on a reputation gained over the years for excellent standards of cuisine - from the most formal banquet to an intimate dinner party - a wide choice of menus is available for every occasion and special diets can be catered for.

St John's College offers: a magnificent, 16th Century hall with a hammer-beam roof and fine old linen-fold panelling, ideal for large sit-down functions (seats 350 in comfort and up to a maximum of 500 for receptions and buffets); the Parsons Room, a delightful beamed room, seating up to 16 for intimate dinner parties, or up to 28 for a stand-up buffet reception; the Wordsworth Room, an attractive room, ideally suited for functions between 20 to 50 sitting down, or up to 70 for a stand-up buffet reception.

A set of banqueting menus and wine list can be supplied upon request.
