Thursdays, Look on their website

If you in Cambridge on Thursdays, go to the Wren Library. But check their website first. If you a Winnie Poo Fan, you'll be mighty surprised.

The interior is interesting but even more amazing is seeing Isaac Newton's own notebook with his handwriting and items from the author of Winnie the Pooh. All this available for viewing for free,

On a guided tour we were informed of the college's long history and riches. It has had about 30 Nobel laureates. The college alone. Truly amazing. Unfortunately we were not able to see any of the indoors.

The largest college, biggest quad and greatest number of nobel prize winners. Check out the statues in the chapel and see the Wren Library - all for £2

They charge you about 2 pounds to visit the lawns and the chapel.. just stand at the centre, and soak in history, I simply loved this place.

I have been to a few open seminars at Trinity College and have found each one to be educational, thought-provoking, and well-organized. I would recommend going to one if available!

This wonderful college is the prototype for all universities that have followed it. The main courtyard is famous for its annual race against the clock chiming at Noon (as featured in "Chariots of Fire").

Trinity College dates back to the 13th century and is one of the oldest in existence. Its magnificent gatehouse is a favourite spot for tourists to take photographs. Very picturesque
