Back Lawn Events

Although many Cambridge colleges boast spectacular gardens, views and architecture, few can claim to have a backdrop as iconic as King's College Chapel. We are proud and delighted to be able to offer our Back Lawn for large scale events during vacation time in the warmer months of the year.

Stretching out down to the River Cam, the Back Lawn is the perfect space to entertain up to 3,000 guests on a sunny summer evening with the iconic Chapel in the background. Offer your guests the opportunity to not only wander the tranquil grounds and take in the magnificent views, but also walk on the pristine grass that few get to enjoy, especially with a drink in hand.

The outdoor potential at King’s is exciting, and we will work with you to help create a truly one of a kind reception that your guests will remember for years to come. As the lawn is such an immaculate and well maintained location, you can rest assured that it will always look beautiful, however if you want to add extra entertainment we can accommodate anything from garden games to coconut shies.

As we can never guarantee that the sun will shine, for larger events a marquee is required to cater for your group should the weather not be on your side. For dining, numbers that are larger than we can accommodate in our Hall have the potential to be hosted in a marquee. If you are looking to host an event over this number, then do get in touch and we can advise where necessary.

The great food and prestigious location really made our guests feel valued
