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.

Toured a few colleges. Very different from U.S. colleges. Don't walk on the lawn. There are plenty of signs. We were fortunate to have a group dinner at a different college. Trinity and a few other famous colleges are worth touring.

The Trinity is a must stop. The most expensive and most reputable College in Cambridge. The main court is specially suggestive. Do not forget to visit the impressive library.

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
