We attended a classic car show here yesterday, the buildings and grounds were stunning and you can take a guided tour of the college. The car show itself was very good with varied exhibits on show. We will be attending again next year!

Visited here on the basis that I had previously attended a football camp here, and that my girlfriend wanted a picture. Private school grounds, so drove down the road next to the Rugby pictures, took a quick picture and left. Cannot comment on the interior.

Interesting buildings and playing fields through this private school. Lots of great walks in the area. The school has some famous names associated such as Tolkein and Conan Doyle.

During the summer months, the college have guided tours around the older parts of the college, some of which date to the late 1400's. Well worth a visit for anyone interested in old things.

A great place to visit with wonderful gardens. There are many things to see, especially if you can gain access to the Jesuit collection. Wonderful place!
