History to the present day

The fifth oldest College of Cambridge University, Trinity Hall was founded by Bishop William Bateman of Norwich in 1350. This stunning venue holds many architectural treasures and historical artefacts dating back to Medieval times.

Nestled between Clare and Trinity Colleges, Trinity Hall lies beside the River Cam in the centre of Cambridge. With its gardens, architecture and riverside position, Henry James said of it, “If I were called upon to mention the prettiest corner of the world, I should draw a thoughtful sigh and point the way to the gardens of Trinity Hall.”

In the early days of Oxford & Cambridge Universities the term college only referred to the group of students who lived within a Hall. Later on it became fashionable to adopt the name College instead of Hall. However by the time this became fashionable Henry VIII had created his own Trinity College next door leaving Trinity Hall no option but to remain as Trinity Hall.

Booked just 24 hours before visiting. Porter staff very friendly, helpful and polite. Excellent value for central Cambridge. Beautiful place to wake up in the morning after a late evening at work.
Mr Jon H

Staying at Trinity was an amazing experience - so much history and atmosphere! The room was comfortable and I could make a cup of tea in the shared kitchen. The shared bathroom was clean and functional. Breakfast was included and was full English cooked breakfast with tea and coffee in the large student dining hall. Overall, an experience I won’t forget!
Ms Angeleen R

A fantastic experience to sleep in famous Trinity Hall College. Everything was perfect, the room was big and clean and so was the shared bathroom. The map and instructions on how to get there were very clear, and so was the booking process. I would highly recommend it .
Mrs Lucie B

This was excellent. It was remarkable to get B & B in a Central Cambridge location for £60, and all the staff I encountered (porters and catering) were extremely efficient and helpful. Shouldn't say this, but I am a graduate of another Central Cambridge college, and they aren't as impressive as this.

Wonderful stay at Trinity Hall. Spacious room with lovely views over the quad and, best of all, access to the river terrace where I could watch the punts go by! Highly recommend staying at Trinity Hall if you visit Cambridge.
