Introducing Three New Chinaware Collections for the University Arms, Cambridge.


As one of the UK's most celebrated hotel openings of 2018, the University Arms in Cambridge has been labelled in the press as a true 'head turner'. William Edwards Professional has been at the heart of its transformation and guest experience with a range of new chinaware commissions.

Working closely with University Arms' Executive Chef, Tristan Welch, William Edwards designed and crafted three unique and wonderfully contrasting bone china ranges that draw inspiration from Cambridge's famous landmarks, the hotel's stunning interior by renowned designer, Martin Brudnizki, and exterior by architect, John Simpson.

The striking University Tea collection has already become a talking-point of the University Arms' afternoon tea guest experience and perfectly complements Tristan Welch's aim to serve guests with 'a whimsical re-imagining of British classics'.

Quirky and playful cartoon caricatures of historical figures and local landmarks span the collection, including Sir Isaac Newton, The Mathematical Bridge and the greenery of Cambridge's Parker's Piece.


The Parker's Tavern all-day dining collection brings a clean contemporary look to the new restaurant and offers the perfect canvas on which to showcase the varied English brasserie-style cuisine served throughout the day. Each piece in the collection, which includes dinner plates, bowls, saucers, oval fish dish and handled soup cup, features a single yellow P'T backstamp.

The University Arms also wanted to create a collection exclusively for use in its 192 hotel rooms and suites, and also for gifting.

The architecturally-themed design on each mug is based on the magnificent re-built exterior of the hotel. For gifting, each mug is presented in a gold leaf monogrammed box.
