Fitzwilliam Museum

Located just 400 yards from hotel, The Fitzwilliam Museum was described by the Standing Commission on Museums & Galleries in 1968 as “one of the greatest art collections of the nation and a monument of the first importance”. It owes its foundation to Richard, VI Viscount Fitzwilliam of Merrion who, in 1816, bequeathed to the University of Cambridge his works of art and library, to further “the Increase of Learning and other great Objects of that Noble Foundation”.
