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 Clayton Hotel is a 4-star boutique hotel with a lovely meeting room (pictured).
Being just a stone's throw from Cambridge Rail Station means using public transport to get to us is very easy. There are also metered parking spaces (free of charge from 5pm and on Sundays) in Tenison Rd, Great Northern Rd and Ravensworth Gardens.
We are delighted to host our Saturday courses in the historic environment of Christ's College (where Charles Darwin studied)! We have exclusive use of the beautiful Old Combination Room, a spacious wood panelled room with views over the college dining hall. 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 4-minute walking distance of Christ's college (Park Street and Grand Arcade), but PLEASE NOTE there are two cheaper car parks within 15 minutes walk: Queen Anne Terrace car park (CB1 1ND) and Castle Hill car park (CB3 0AR). Click the map for walking directions from all car parks (you can zoom in and out for more detail).
If arriving by train see further info below.
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. Drummer St Bus station is just 2 mins walk from Christ's college.
If you are looking for overnight accommodation in Cambridge, I can highly recommend searching SpeedyBooker.com. This site returns a wide range of options from city centre hotels to privately let rooms and even singles or doubles available to book as B&B within a Cambridge college! Using the handy map you can choose accommodation in central Cambridge so that you only have to walk from the college.
We also hold tastings for private groups and business socials at the Royal Cambridge Hotel, Cambridge Brew House, other select restaurants and a range of Cambridge Colleges (subject to availability).
Or we can come to you!
If you are coming into Cambridge by train, our evening venue is nearby. There is a bus from the train station every few minutes to the city centre if you are coming to the Saturday courses - buses 1, 3, 7 and 8 all stop in St Andrews Street near Christ's colllege. Alternatively there are always taxis waiting at the station and the ride takes only 5-10 minutes.
