Newnham Grange

Newnham Grange is an attractive building at the eastern end of the main College site. Some rooms overlook a large stretch of lawn, the Darwin Study Centre, and the west end of the Silver Street bridge; others either face along the back of the College, looking onto the gardens and the river with its two small islands (the islands themselves are accessible over a wooden bridge), or overlook Silver Street and Queens' Green.  Some of the second-floor rooms share a view of the Mill Pond, a popular riverside area that is situated next to the University Centre, the Double Tree Hotel, and a variety of bars and restaurants.  Some rooms have balconies.

The rooms themselves are in three groups: the five first-floor balcony rooms; the six second-floor balcony rooms; and the eleven second-floor rooms along the corridor that runs the length of the building.  Each group of balcony rooms shares a kitchen, a shower and a toilet.  The corridor rooms share a double-sized kitchen, two showers and two toilets. 

Newnham Grange is the renowned childhood home of Charles Darwin's granddaughter, Gwen Raverat; it retains many of the features she described in her memoir, Period Piece.
