Council Ceremony Rooms - While we are aware that the Government has lifted many Covid restrictions, they still urge everyone to proceed with caution to reduce transmission of the virus.  Cambridgeshire County Council and Public Health continue to review the number of people permitted in each of our ceremony rooms. 

The maximum number of people who can currently attend a ceremony or formation in one of our ceremony rooms is as follows:


  • The Brooke Room - 46

  • The Keats Room - 50

  • The Wordsworth Room - 58

  • The Tennyson Room - 46


This number includes the couple and two witnesses. Babies, children and photographers are included in this number.

Venues Ceremonies - Please speak to your venue who will confirm the number of people that can attend your ceremony.

Cambridge Register Office / Brooke Room relocation - UPDATE 19 April 2022

Castle Lodge stands in the grounds of Shire Hall and ceremonies will take place here up to and including 31 July 2022.

The service will be relocated to another city location in summer 2022.  There is limited availability for ceremony bookings at the current location for early 2022.


The aim is that from August 2022 ceremonies will take place at a site being re-purposed on Ascham Road in Cambridge. Major works are currently taking place. It is anticipated numbers will be roughly the same as the Castle Lodge site.

If you have a ceremony booked in The Brooke Room from August 2022 then you will be unable to give notice until the room has been licenced. This is likely to occur in May 2022. We will contact all affected couples when it is possible to give notice for the ceremony room on our new site.
