Located in the heart of Cambridge, the Pitt Building is steeped in the city’s publishing and academic history. Originally commissioned in honour of William Pitt the Younger, an undergraduate of Pembroke College and former British Prime Minister, the building was completed in 1833 to accommodate the printing and publishing offices of Cambridge University Press, which it did for over 100 years.
The Pitt is triangulated by culture. To the left is the historic King’s Parade, home to college, chapel, Great St Mary’s Church and dozens of local establishments To the right, The Fitzwilliam – one of Europe’s premier regional museums. Head round the corner and you reach the scenic Backs of the university, with its punting tourists and riverside pubs, perfect for warm summer evenings. And all just an hour from central London.
It might only be five minutes down the road, but it sure feels like we’ve come a long way from the three-room office above a kebab shop.
