With Cambridge being named the best UK city to work in by Glassdoor, we take a look at what makes Cambridge such a brilliant destination – not only for those that live here but also for those who visit more briefly for a training programme or conference.


Home to a world class university and thriving technology industry (and that’s just the tip of the iceberg of Cambridge’s dynamic community) what better place to meet and connect with some of the best and brightest minds? Even if business networking isn’t really your thing, you’re sure to meet some seriously interesting people.

The University provides so much more than just a scenic back drop to the city and if you’re looking to learn from the experts, our Executive Education Team can make that happen. As part of Churchill College, our unique position within the University of Cambridge means we are part of an ecosystem that gives us unrivalled access to the academic community and cutting-edge research. It also enables us to attract the highest calibre of CEOs and leaders to share their knowledge and experience with clients.

The traditional Cambridge experience

While we focus on maintaining a pure business environment within the Centre to maximise the opportunity for learning and knowledge retention, the city offers a wealth of cultural and social activities to enrich your experience. From punting on the River Cam or exploring the city on foot with an expert guide, to dining in a iconic Cambridge College – there’s so much the city has to offer – if you can fit it into your timetable!

Location, location, location

Getting down to practicalities, Cambridge is well-connected and easily accessible for delegates from across the UK, Europe and the world. A fast and frequent service runs from London King’s Cross (45 mins) and Stansted Airport is only a short 30 minute train away. Arriving on wheels? We have an on-site car park with 150 spaces, ample cycle parking, or if you’re travelling internationally, we can arrange a private airport transfer.
