The Ballroom and The Watson

There are few halls in Cambridge that compare with the grandeur and charm of the University Arms Ballroom — a wood-panelled room that belongs to our city’s heritage. Natural light spills in through huge stained-glass windows ecorated with college crests, with views looking out over the city’s iconic Parker’s Piece.

The Watson

For smaller weddings, the Ballroom is divided with a solid oak partition to create two separate rooms: the Crick and the Watson. The Watson creates a more intimate atmosphere whilst retaining charm and elegance.

“Stunning setting and great personnel, your staff were such a credit to you with no fuss or bother - you have a precious commodity to guard and cherish!”
