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.

This is another example of the many beautiful colleges in Cambridge. It was founded by founded in 1448 by Margaret of Anjou who was the Queen of Henry VI, who founded King's College. One reason to visit Queen's when it is open, in addition to seeing the beautiful buildings and grounds, is the opportunity to cross the Mathematical Bridge and... More

My husband visited the college and found it to be both very historical and lovely. He especially enjoyed the history of its founding by the sister of Henry the Viii. so that women could be educated..

Sure its not as large as Kings but Queen's college has it own unique history. The buildings are in their own right quite striking. The chapel and grounds are very nice. If you take the walking guided tour you will have quite a bit of information to enrich your visit. Highly recommend you do that.
