There are so many colleges to see when in Cambridge. If you have limited time, at least take time to see Trinity College nad its beautiful chapel.

Wonderful concert here, solo cello. Sound quality in the chapel is better than Kings College Chapel. Good program of events throughout the year, worth noting.

While walking around the city, we stumbled across this site and decided to explore it. After the gate, we were impressed by the open courtyard and center monument. On the ride side was a display room of statues with a large room next to it for prayer or meditation. Unfortunately, many other areas were closed to visitors. A pleasure stay... More

I was keen to visit this place because I knew a portion of Ek Tha Tiger was filmed here. It's a nice place to visit really.

Prince Charles was here - so it has the Royal accolade. One of the top five colleges in the UK with famous buildings (especially the Wren Library) and an atmosphere of centuries that no modern college can replecate.

Make sure to coincide your visit with 12-2PM on Mon-Fri. This will give you a chance to visit the significant Wren Library located on the grounds of Trinity College.

Our visit was not very long, but memorable and very much worth seeing. Several of the areas were not accessible on the day we visited, so this was disappointing, but understandable. As noted by others, the chapel is just stunning. Take in the history and enjoy! Highly recommended.

Trinity college is the most important, famous and powerful of at least Cambridge, so kind of a must see. Nice chapel, although not as impressive as chapels of other colleges and structure. Could not see the library as you can see it just from 12am to 2pm.

Trinity Colleague was nice to walk around. However this isn't really too much to see. I would recommend a short visit.
