My partner and I stayed for a long weekend in the West Court accommodation. It’s fabulous and so clean and modern, with great views of the courtyard and old buildings. Breakfast is a very special experience- small choice but you are made to feel special

An excellent place to stay in Cambridge. Pretty central to all those Cambridge events, art, music, etc. Incredible breakfast - a great variety including even a bowl of sugar cubes - both white and brown sugar. Very classy and staff are very helpful.

Jesus college, like many, has lots of history and dates back to St. Radegond's nunnery that was built in the 12th century, although the college was established between 1496 and 1516. The chapel has modern stained glass windows by William Morris.

Definitely worth strolling around - you can get a map for free from the porters lodge. Steeped in history - watching students flitting across the green - quintissentially English!
