Clare College

Founded in 1326 and then re-founded in 1338 by Elizabeth de Burgh, countess of Clare. It occupies an enviable position on both sides of the river Cam. The current buildings of the Old Courts date 1638-1715. They are linked by beautiful gardens and a bridge to Memorial Court, a memorial to the fallen of the First World War.  Memorial Court contains the college’s largest lecture theatre, the Riley Auditorium, together with exhibition space and conference facilities.  Lectures will take place in both the Old Courts and in Memorial Court.


The College has long been the main home of the Cambridge University Heraldic & Genealogical Society, whose members will be playing an active role in welcoming delegates to their University. 


Accommodation will be available at Clare where delegates can opt to stay for up to five nights, Monday to Friday.  Both single and twin rooms are available, all with en-suite bathrooms. Breakfast is included, served in the Great Hall at Clare, and there will be the option to book dinner at the College.  It will not be possible to accommodate all delegates at the College, and early booking is recommended in order to avoid disappointment. The organisers aim to provide rooms in other colleges when Clare has become fully booked.
