Celebrations & garden parties

Celebrations & garden parties

From corporate days-out to wedding anniversaries, we would be delighted to work with you to plan your perfect formal or informal celebration in one of our stunning venues.

Lerner Court

Lerner Court and the Garden Room makes a perfect venue for a drinks reception. The Garden Room doors open wide to give a refreshing al fresco feel in spring and summer. An excellent venue for barbecues, as the food can be served inside and enjoyed outside.

Scholars Garden

This riverside garden is an outstanding location for punting, canapés and sparkling wine. We can help to arrange punting from our private dock and guests can be collected in the city centre and dropped at Clare bridge.

Memorial Court Lawns

These lawns located at the front of Memorial Court are excellent for larger groups or those wishing to play croquet. All types of catering can be served here and we have a variety of reception drinks to give your event a swing! 

Bar and Cellars

The atmospheric Bar and Clare College Cellars are located below the chapel in Old Court and is the ideal location for amplified music or evening entertainment. 

Additional Catering

If you are staying in Cambridge for activities but you would like to reconvene before you depart, we can arrange an afternoon tea or refreshments later in the day.

Ideas for activities

  • A croquet set can be borrowed from our Porters' Lodge
  • A walk round the famous Fellows’ Garden
  • Punting
  • Tours of nearby Colleges and Kings College Chapel can be arranged via Visit Cambridge 
  • Alternatively, if you are simply looking for a dinner venue, please visit our Fine Dining page
