Christmas at University Arms

Stay from 24th - 26th December at University Arms and enjoy a relaxing festive break in Cambridge

  • 24th December 2022 - 26th December 2022
  • 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

From the carolling that rings out from the great chapels of Cambridge to the frost that covers the city parks, there is no finer English city to spend Christmas in – nor a hotel more inviting than University Arms. Enjoy festive dining in Parker’s Tavern, relaxing by the fire in the Library and beautiful city walks in the crisp winter air.

This will be a winter experience full of memories, when seasonal fog wraps the dreaming colleges, the pubs are cosy, and the walks along the River Cam are full of soul.
