Again a beautiful college, just we could only access the chapel and unfortunately even in the chapel we could only take a look behind the line... so we could see the big empty hall but had no chance to look closer.... From a distance it...More

Just entering Trinity College, you feel the air change. This is a wonderful set of buildings and there is no doubt all and any student studying here would this.

Not cheap to visit the colleges so need to pick just one You can walk around the grounds of Kings College & hire a punt for 6 at a very reasonable price. Bought a picnic in Sainsbury's & took it with us.

We really enjoyed seeing the Wren Library at Trinity College and learning about its construction. The fact that there is no overhead lighting is remarkable - only a few desk lamps. Wonderful displays of very rare materials including some of Newton's original works and A.A.Milne's...More

Charged £3 to look at a grass quad!!!! One of the wealthiest universities in the UK, with nothing much for the public to see in the college grounds and yet they charge a ticket admission. Wow.

Great town to visit for a nostalgia trip to see the grounds of the different colleges. Must see Fitzwilliam museum that’s a short walk away. Also within walking distance from several restaurants, a mall, and a bus station to get around town.

Trinity college is one of the most beautiful historical buildings in Cambridge and not too crowded. Don't forget to visit Wren Library because it has a unique atmosphere.

Impressive, beautiful building, full of history and well kept. We were told that Isaac Newton discovered gravity here, in this college. Unfortunately the Wren library was closed when we paid visit to the college.

Heart stopping for any book lover. A very special place with very special books. Amazing to see authors comments in the margins of such famous books. Moving. Must see at Cambridge.

I usually park in one of the side roads on the left side of Huntingdon Road on the way into Cambridge (Oxford Rd or Richmond Rd). It's then about 10-15 mins walk to Magdalene Bridge. From there you can hire a punt or walk... More
