Evensong is held three times a week here and although on the main high street, as soon as you walk through the gates you are transported to a different place and time. The chapel is beautiful and compact with great acoustics and the quad area...More

A good college to visit if you've only got a few minutes. If you want photographs you can take them from the high street and then there are more photo opportunities inside the college grounds.
