Rooms of Distinction

Located in the heart of historic Cambridge, The Pitt Building offers the ideal blend of unique venue and expert team to deliver your perfect event. Thanks to our unrivalled location – you don’t just get The Pitt Building, you get Cambridge too. The world-famous colleges, the treasure-filled Fitzwilliam Museum, the tranquil River Cam, an array of enticing shops – all are just a short stroll from our front door.

The Oriel Room

Arguably one of the most stunning meeting rooms in Cambridge, this handsome Gothic room is perfectly suited to executive board meetings. The room features a solid oak table fixed in an open rectangle, with individual lights, generous leather chairs, an 80 inch LED screen, advanced video-conferencing facilities and, its centrepiece, the breathtaking Oriel window. Every book published by Cambridge University Press, receives its official stamp of approval right here in the Oriel Room.


The Darwin Room

Our largest room offers the ideal environment for a variety of meetings and events. Just off The Pitt Building’s impressive reception area, the Darwin Room is a versatile and spacious ground-floor conference suite with climate control, an abundance of natural light, built-in A/V equipment and Wi-Fi internet access.

Also on the ground floor, the Newton Room has a more intimate feel. With all the technical specifications of the Darwin Room, this room is ideal for training sessions or smaller boardroom meetings. The two rooms are connected by the rear reception area which can be used for refreshments or display space.
