We were staying in guest rooms at Jesus college as guests of one of the professors here. Parking within the grounds through an electrically operated gate was a bonus as trying to park in Cambridge is nigh on impossible. We arranged a permit at the porters loge and he gave us swipe card to our accommodation. The bedroom had been... More

We were lucky enough to be able to have a stroll around here the day before the Tour de France when many others were closed to the general public. It was very peaceful and the gardens are beautifully tended. We also had a very brief yet obscured view of the Antony Gormely.

College buildings in spacious grounds, approached by the famous chimney (cheminee, walled walk) from Jesus Lane. Away from most other colleges but opposite All Saints church (qv). mellow stone, expansive lawns, and for some reason, an old US fire engine in one of the quads. The impression even more bizarre when we were there because of an international surveillance conference,... More

The college with its courtyards, halls and gardens is amazing. Add a formal dinner with excellent food and great service, and there is nothing to complaint about. I'll definitely go again when a chance appears!

Grand dinner held here was disappointing although surroundings were as with all Cambridge colleges magnificent. Starters good both vegetables and meat eaters. Mains dreadful. Vege too busy and tasteless. Beef that really should have been tender took ages to saw and managed to quieter our fellow diners for a long spell as they excercised their jaws! Average desert but odd... More

A pleasure to be able to walk around this old college. The buildings are from different periods and the new ones are blending in very nicely. The location next to Jesus green and Midsummer commons is nice.

My first visit was on a Thursday night for a formal dinner that I had to attend. Behind the garden walls you can find yourself wondering through a complete maze of passages between courtyards. Definitely this college has a certain enchanting something that makes you love it.

If visiting Cambridge, Jesus College is worth a look. Starting at the top (North) of the Trinity/St Johns complex, where the two streets meet, go South a few yards on the Eastmost of the 2 Streets, then (at Sainsbury's) turn East onto Jesus Lane for about 150 yards, enter by Iron Gates on the North leading onto a Brick-walled alley...
