We visited here just to sit in the gardens - amazing fragrant wisteria covering the front of building late April/early May. Quiet relaxing gardens with benches to sit and relax away from the cities hustle & bustle!

Okay, full disclosure: I attended Christ's College, so my view may be a little biased. However, Christ's is a beautiful, small college, laid out in four 'courts'. First court includes cobblestones and some of the college's older buildings, with some being remnants from as far...More

My favourite college. Three courts of contrasting architecture. The chapel is a must and if you're there on a weekday you can take a stroll through the garden and take a peek at one of the country's oldest swimming pools.
