Cambridgeshire Wine School uses venues in the heart of Cambridge easy to reach.
We can also come to you (if you have enough people). If you are organising a social, we can add some wine tasting fun at the venue you have already arranged for your meal.
The main venue we use for Evening tastings is the Royal Cambridge Hotel in Trumpington Street (CB2 1PY) in either The Senate room (pictured) or The Terrace room.
The hotel buiding was originally a row of large Georgian houses and its meeting rooms are spacious with high ceilings.
There is also free parking behind the hotel for wine school customers (although limited space).
We are delighted to host our Saturday courses in the spectacular environment of Gonville and Caius college, one of the oldest colleges in Cambridge (founded 1348). We have the exclusive use of the beautiful Senior parlour, a spacious wood panelled room with lovely views overlooking Gonville Court. Enjoy a luxurious day tasting 13 wines including Champagne and a fabulous lunch!
If you are driving to a Saturday course, there are two multi-storey car parks within a 5-minute walking distance of Gonville & Caius college (Park Street and Grand Arcade), but PLEASE NOTE Queen Anne Terrace car park (CB1 1ND) and Castle Hill car park (CB3 0AR) are 15 mins walk away and both considerably cheaper. Click the map for walking directions (and a map which you can zoom in and out for more detail).
Cambridge also has 5 'park and ride' services operating at satellite points on the outskirts of the city (leave your car for free and take the bus into the city centre): click here for Park & Ride details.
See this video for a 40-second clip showing how to walk to and find the college and the room we use!
If you want to know about Cambridge accommodation the best resource I can direct you to is VisitCambridge. (Simply use the drop-down menu on the right to select hotels or B&Bs, narrow your choice by selecting in the location field ‘City Centre +up to 1 mile’ and then put your date in the calendar).
We also hold tastings for private groups and business socials at the Royal Cambridge Hotel, Cambridge Brew House, d'Arry's restaurant and Gonville & Caius college (subject to availability).
Or we can come to you!
If you are coming into Cambridge by train, there is a bus from the train station every few minutes to the city centre - buses 1, 3, 7 and 8 all stop in St Andrews Street and from there our venues are just a short walk. Alternatively there are always taxis waiting at the station and the ride to any of our venues takes only 5-10 minutes.
