St John's College, Cambridge

St John’s College celebrated its 500th Anniversary in 2011. The College was founded on the site of the 13th-century Hospital of St John in Cambridge, expanding over the subsequent five hundred years to become the largest of the Oxford and Cambridge Colleges by area.

St John's has magnificent gardens and extends onto the famous Cambridge Backs beyond the River Cam, with its courts connected by the beautiful Bridge of Sighs. Although the Main Gate of the College leads right into the heart of the city, the College courts provide a serene and peaceful environment for guests.

The Bed and Breakfast offer bedrooms in recently refurbished rooms situated in North Court, Chapel and in Third Court. These rooms accommodate students during Term time. Both twin and single rooms are available and all have ensuite facilities. The twin rooms have separate beds in different rooms and connected with a small lounge.

The college has been awarded a 4* rating by Enjoy England, for the last three years, the last audit being in September 2018 by Visit England.  

PLEASE NOTE THE MINIMUM AGE OF A CHILD THAT IS ALLOWED TO VISIT WITH AN ADULT IS 16 YEARS

The whole experience was great and especially impressed two of the party from Ireland. The overall feeling could not have been bettered and we were very pleased to have chosen to stay at a college in the City Centre. (The weather helped!!) We would certainly do it again.

I had stayed at St John’s several years ago, which is why I re-booked this time. All the staff we met were very helpful and the staff at breakfast particularly so. The college was central to what my friend and I wished to do in Cambridge. It was a most enjoyable stay, and I shall recommend St John’s...

A great experience, one which I thought I would never have. Room with a view of the Bridge of Sighs how good was that. Yes facilities are basic but that is part of the attraction. The views, peace and tranquility and sense of history are the main draw. Wii stay again.

One has to consider that the buildings are old when booking (but the buttery is "new"). The traditional sites are impressive! Although there was a kitchen in the room, no cutlery was provided. Towels seem to be replaced once a week. Breakfast was delicious and the service there and at the recept...
