Celebrate at Red Lion Whittlesford Bridge

If you are searching for Cambridge party venues then look no further than the award winning 4* Red Lion at Whittlesford Bridge. There are many venues to choose from in the Cambridge area, from top class restaurants, historic houses, clubs, bars and some unusual venues but only the Red Lion can offer you and your guests the best of all worlds.

With so many venues to choose from its best to try and narrow down your party venue search by drawing up a list of must have requirements. Consider the number of guests and the room hire price. Also think about the type of party it is and what, if any, catering needs you will have.

Is it going to be a formal black-tie affair or a children’s party? Whatever your needs we can meet your expectations and more. If you and your party revellers are looking to paint the town red or if you want children having their faces painted, we can handle it.

We have event organisers who can liaise with you to make your ideas a reality. So whatever your perfect party looks like in your mind’s eye, we can make it happen. We can create, using our ingredients of a great location, fantastic food and accommodation, the ideal party event for any occasion.

Just let us know if you require a blank canvas space or some sort of themed event and your requirements for any entertainment such as a DJ, band or something that little bit out of the ordinary?

We are pleased to say that not only can we help you make the decisions about the party and provide in-house solutions but we can also recommend local Cambridgeshire suppliers for anything that needs to be outsourced.

We aim to make sure that your guests talk enthusiastically about your party for years to come.  The proof of our success is the number of repeat booking s we get from satisfied customers.

Type of Party

Whatever the party event is to celebrate we probably have experience of hosting that type of party. We typically hold parties for special occasions such as birthdays, weddings, Christmas, Christenings, naming ceremonies, anniversaries, retirement parties and other types of family celebration.

At the Red Lion we are fully licensed and have a top Chef and kitchen staff to provide what is needed for the party. From a sit down dinner to buffet food, drinks, entertainment & decorations just let our event planner know what you need.

Remember, we can also offer accommodation for you and your guests so if you want to make it a great weekend celebration then we can make that happen.
