This is a fairly nice college. The dining room is particularly large, with a very high vaulted ceiling. The buildings are very similar to many other of the Cambridge colleges, and just across the road from colleges that are actually on the river. Worth a quick look around, but probably not the highest priority in the city.

Our visit was on Friday in August so the college was very quiet. It costs £2.50 to enter and kids are free. The hustle and bustle of Cambridge's busy streets felt a world away as we stepped into the peace and tranquility of the college. Having never attended university, I must admit to lacking first-hand experience of the life of... More

Corpus Christie college is having a rich history of its own. It is a nice place to visit the people who comes to Cambridge. Wide corridor and serious environment here really whisper in your ears about the glory of University of Cambridge

Lovely college, one of the smaller and older colleges - BUT it still has its old original 14th century court, the oldest in Britain. The "New Court" is 250 years old and is the main courtyard that greets visitors. From the street you enter via the Porters Lodge gateway to be greeted by the sight of the beautiful lawn and... More

My cousin is a visiting fellow of Cambridge so he got us into this dining room for lunch. They have three selections which are not bad and reasonably priced. The real interest though is the dining room with high-table (where the master and the professors sit) and three rows of regular tables. The windows are stained glass and the ceiling... More

Attended Remembrance Sunday service at Corpus Christi - felt a bit awkward at first, since I'm an "outsider", but the clergy were very welcoming and helpful in explaining how the service would proceed, etc. (wreaths, Last Post, etc. made this Sunday different from typical services), and the smaller chapel made for a peaceful, reflective church experience. I would love to... More

It has A quarter of all Anglo Saxon manuscripts. Fascinating And beautiful manuscripts Mostly bequeathed by Matthew Parker, Elizabethan Archbishop of Canterbury and origin of the term nosy parker.

We were warned that many of the colleges close for the day with no apparent reason. This we found to be true but not so Corpus Christi. The centre point is a large square with immaculate lawns. It is a shame that many of the buildings within do not allow access to the general public. We were fortunate to enter... More

This is such an archetypal Oxbridge College with the beautiful golden stone of New Court and the quaint intimacy of Old Court. Corpus is small compared to St Johns and Kings but it's perfectly formed.

I had the opportunity to visit Corpus Christi and to hear Corpus Christi choir sing inside the beautiful chapel. It is well worth a visit. The choir was excellent. Acoustics were very good. The service was very moving. I will definitely return again when I am in Cambridge.
