Our tour in Oxford included a visit to Trinity College. In a library of old and rare books, I spotted one with the intriguing (to me) title of "Clarke on Coins." I asked the librarian to pull it out, which she did. I thought it might be illustrated, but it wasn't. My wife and I were amazed at the relatively... More

I shall mention the positive first. It was lovely to visit this college and to gain a glimpse of the cushioned life of the students. The buildings and the very grounds are beautiful. I loved the gardens. However, the young woman on the gates was abrupt towards me and impatient and rude towards and elderly German couple. The same woman... More

Trinity is stunning in setting; it feels like century an enchanted world. The spacious grounds are very attractive. However, it has to be said that the college is utterly obscure, with almost no one of any historical importance associated with it. Apparently old boys include: August Zwimmer (inventor of the "Z-bed"; Albany Arthur Bradnock (19th century balloonist, last seen over... More

Trinity is one of the quintessential Oxford colleges. Not quite as grand as Christchurch. It is perhaps in a slightly more central location and is right near where some of the walking tours of Oxford start. The great thing about Trinity is that it's surrounded by iron railings, so you can see into it without having to pay. Despite being... More

Trinity College is located at Broad Street and Park Roads. We had seen the grounds and the campus at the Parks Roads on the way to the University of Oxford and we thought it as a part of the latter. We walked through Broad Street where there the university entrance is. Do not be discouraged by the 2 pounds entrance... More

There are several quadrangles and gardens, all beautiful. The chapel had some lovely wood carvings, the chapel itself is beautiful. We managed to visit the hall, avoid meal times if you want to visit it.

Absolutely rubbish and worthless. They charge for two pounds to get inside the building. Inside, you can only see a loan (normal loan) and a dormitory. There is nothing special. And if you ask them why you need to pay for it they will say "because we are famous" (cocky).

We were very fortunate to be offered a personal viewing of Adolphus Trollope's encyclopaedia by the Trinity archivist & alumnus John Allan. Next thing we knew there was Henry VIII's bible in front of us. Wow. Quite unexpected.

Beautiful well maintained buildings and gardens still in bloom. Similar architecture to others I have visited. I was however impressed with the Garden Quadrangle where we observed squirrels jumping about and particularly the Library Quadrangle where a statue made from barbed wire had been donated by a past student. So much history reflecting life as an Oxford student.
