My wife and I had some difficulty finding Christ's College, finally getting aid from a couple of guys with smart phones. Admission wasn't allowed, but we were permitted to take pictures looking into the first court. There was also information in the gate-house about Darwin's stay at Christ's College, and we photographed that as well. This is not a must-see... More

Christ's college is one of colleges in Cambridge University. It offers a good tutorial support to its students. All members are encouraged to explore a wide range of outside interests. Many extra-curricular activities are done by the students: like sport, music, drama, films, debating, and many more. It is a small college, but has earned a name for its excellence.... More

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 back as 500 years ago. There is also the Master's Lodge, which is especially recognisable... 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.

In my opinion Christ's College is one of the nicer colleges. There is more to see then Colleges, such as Trinity.
