Downing College, University of Cambridge

Downing is a College of the University of Cambridge and was founded in 1800 through a bequest made by Sir George Downing, Baronet (1685–1749). The Royal Charter was issued on 22 September 1800. Sir George’s grandfather gave his name to Downing Street in London and parts of the house which he built still survive in the present number 10.

Downing College has a unique and magnificent setting amidst 20 acres of lawns and trees, yet it is within half a mile of the historic centre of Cambridge. The buildings date back to the beginning of the 19th century and are predominantly neo-classical in style conveying a sense of elegance and spaciousness enhanced by harmonious proportions, graceful columned porticos, and delicate pink and yellow stone.
