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.
