Newnham College Outdoor Events

Newnham College outdoor events, part of the University of Cambridge. Set in 19 acres of grounds, ideally situated in the historic city of Cambridge. Being just five minutes away from the M11 motorway and just over an hour from London. The College offers stylish event space, with beautiful gardens and a good sized sports field.

Our grounds are one of the best kept secrets in Cambridge. Unlike many Cambridge colleges, Newnham’s gardens are normally open to the public for much of the year. Although external outdoor events can only take place between July and September. Newnham College provides the perfect setting for a range of outdoor events – including summer parties, weddings, BBQ’s, family fun days, sports activities on our sports field and team building events – to name but a few.  We have a fantastic on site catering team, who can look after all of your catering needs.

Add this to our mixture of contemporary and historic meeting rooms and dining spaces, Newnham College is an ideal year-round conference venue.

We have accommodation for up to 380 guests, available out of term, including 81 double en-suite bedrooms. So, if any of your guests want to stay over, we have it all covered.

Unfortunately, as we have bedrooms on site, we are not able to accommodate camping.


Whilst there is limited on site parking, we can arrange car parking for a small additional cost in the local area.
