Emmanuel offers elegant & historic surroundings, combined with excellent event & conference facilities in the centre of Cambridge. Founded in 1584 on the site of a 13th century Dominican Priory, we are an ideal place to host your event, wedding or conference, with our beautiful & varied gardens and range of architectural & internal styles.

In our variety of spaces we are able to accommodate events from a one-day meeting, to large conferences. Our splendid dining rooms, alongside our tranquil gardens, are a perfect setting for private lunches & dinners, special events and garden parties.

The College is also a stunning location for weddings, with our 17th century Chapel, designed by Sir Christopher Wren, and extensive lawns, spectacular trees & planting schemes. Emmanuel’s Chapel is spacious & wood-panelled, with a decorative plaster ceiling completed in 1672, and a magnificent 18th century glass chandelier. The altar sanctuary has a large silver altar cross & 18th century candlesticks, and altarpiece by Pietro Amigoni. Gothic Revival stained glass completes the classic and powerful atmosphere.
