Queen's College is very central in Cambridge. It is on the river, with the Mathematical Bridge joining it from one side to the other. It's nice to wonder round, though there are other more impressive colleges very close by.

Less expensive as nearby Kings College but could do with tour guide. Enjoyed the stretch by the river.

Though the Queen College is smaller and very closer to the University's entrance, it has very fantastic view with a river flow inside.:) there are plenty of flowers along the road, but you need to pay fees for admission.:(

It is so nice to walk alone in the campus. The building and architecture speak a lot of its history and mystery. Love to visit it again

This is so different to King's. From the outside it doesn't look that impressive in comparison to King's College but once inside it is unbelievably attractive with very pretty gardens. Definitely worth a visit.

Queens can be so easily overlooked, sat as it is alongside the more famous and more visible Kings. Yet to not visit will be an omission to your visit to Cambridge. The courtyards are historic and quaint. It is also the home of one of Cambridge's main attractions: the Mathematical Bridge.
