Fitzwilliam College is a large and peaceful site 15 minutes walk away from the centre of the city. The college was built in the grounds of The Grove, a Regency era house that once belonged to the Darwin family and was lived in by Charles Darwin’s wife, Emma, following her husband’s death. The house is now pat of the college and has plenty of grassy areas where students can relax between lessons and Electives during this Cambridge summer school.
The College has a great range of on-site facilities including squash courts and the playing fields are only a short walk away. There are also large classrooms and recreation halls for theatre and indoor activities.
