Not a very notable building along the busy St Andrew's St, however, the interior is quite a nice place. This college is famous for its alumni the founder of Harvard University, John Harvard.

Many colleges charge, this one just welcomes. Its central & small - but gives an indication of the colleges. Try to stop someone to ask about "life as a student"

Emmanuel College is one of the nicer colleges. It features some rare stain glass windows and paintings, inside the main chapel.

Perfect for visitors, it's a very small college but they let you in for free and visit the nicest parts of the college. It's worth visiting, it takes 10 mins and pictures are allowed

Emma is an oasis of calm. One can sit by the pond and watch the famous ducks while Spring unfurls around one. The cloisters are shady and the Rubens in the Chapel is truly stunning. Lucky students. Do visit. It's free.
