This was a nice college to look at. I liked the architecture at St. John's a bit more. But this one has a lot of neat history. Worth taking a look at. Don't miss King's College chapel next door.

Trinity is one of the oldest and largest Colleges in Cambridge, so for those reasons alone it's worth a look. It costs just three pounds to visit, but then you don't really get a lot of privileges for that. You can walk around (sticking to...More
