we totally missed the place as its window of open time is only 2 hours and my tour book failed to highlight this.

Trinity College grounds are immaculate and the college is steeped in history. The only problem, is that the majority of areas are closed to visitors, so besides walking around the two green areas and visiting the chapel there is really not a lot to see.

Amazing place. Got to meet the Law Fellows and Lord Robert Walker at the Award Cermeony. Loved how proud the first-year students are about their College - great ambassadors for Trinity.

Well we couldn't on the particular day we visited. Not sure about other days. But just go out the front. The main gates themselves are worth a look!

Went to Trinity College as part of a tour of The University on a trip with my students. We were wanting to focus on the history of science, and no better place to do this then the home of Isaac Newton - who's famous apple trip (or it's ancestor) is parked right out front! While much of the college was... More

Trinity is the most beautiful of all the colleges in my opinion. Sadly, many parts are closed to visitors, but do not miss any opportunity to visit this magnificent place.

A very dear and longstanding friend studied at Trinity, taking his degree and an MA. Having lived near Cambridge myself, it was a privilege and an honour to be allowed to see parts of Trinity that were not open to the public, and understand the tradition that makes our education system the envy of the world. Thank you Doug for... More

We visited Cambridge on a spur of the moment idea for our anniversary. One of our top attractions to visit was Trinity College. I'm not sure why but I've been drawn to visit this college most out of Cambridge's other colleges. Since then I have herd that Trinity is the richest college there and also boasts the ownership of an... More

The main gate features a statue of Henry VIII with a chair leg in hand (one of the student pranks). I went with a guide who told me that the stones decorating the ground in front of the main gate were the same ones as a couple of hundreds years ago. Apparently when the college decided they needed to some... More
