We took a quick look and a photo op as we walked past this stunning building. We noticed that visitors were welcome so popped in through the huge gates to see the beautiful facade of the building on the other side of the pristine lawns. Would have liked more time and a better look but we liked what little bit... More

We just wandered into this college as we were passing and it seemed to be open to the public but is much less of a tourist attraction than some of the other "big names". We spent a very pleasant 30 minutes wandering around. At one point, a passing "fellow" asked if he could help as we were looking lost and... More

During our free time one afternoon in Cambridge, my wife and I toured Corpus Christi College, which was established in 1352. The admission fee was 2.5 pounds each, or about $7 for both. For that fee, we gained admission to the first court, with magnificent buildings surrounding it. One of the buildings was the chapel, complete with vaulted ceiling and... More

I really didn't expect much. As a part of Cambridge history it's important at least passing there. Take a picture and straight ahead.

The college contains lodges that are the oldest in either this University city or Oxford; the lawns are manicured, the buildings are austere and ooze character. The Chapel - modelled on it's larger compatriot in King's - was flooded with organ music when we visited and the deep resonant sounds made the whole building vibrate - a wonderful sound. As... More

We did not expect much as this college is not as famous or visited as some; we were delighted though to find the oldest court in either Cambridge or Oxford, a fabulous and atmospheric 14 th century building. We had it to ourseves as well and there was a feeling of mellow peace and antiquity. There's also a magnificent stone... More

We were part of a small group visit to the College, concentrating on Matthew Parker's library. Amazing collection and a very good display including very rare Anglo Saxon material. The College's assistant librarian, Beth, who led our group was a model of excellence as she patiently answered all our questions and even found examples of Early English charters for us... More

We did not go into the college but saw this as part of our trip down the river on a Punt. Plenty information provided by the young lady delivering the tour
