I think Darwin is one of the real hidden secrets of Cambridge, it might not look like much from the outside but it has a good atmosphere and really beautiful gardens, which back onto the river and are one of the most relaxing places to sit and relax. I had supervisions at Darwin in my third year as a historian for the paper 'Rise of the Secret World: Governments and Intelligence communities in the twentieth century' - I had a really inspirational supervisor, and many of my friends who took this paper enjoyed having supervisions at Darwin as well.

Review by Alex L - Historian, supervisions at Darwin - add your impression

Stunning. From the outside, Darwin doesn't look that special. But inside, it has an amazing bar, with a very fine selection of beers and whiskeys, and some lovely rooms. The real selling point for Darwin though is the gardens, with tributaries to the Cam passing through the garden, creating islands linked by bridges and giving plenty of beautiful and amazingly quiet areas for its central location, the perfect place to spend a long evening having a few drinks with friends.
