It is beautiful from outside, and even more from inside. Great chapel, with a statue of a young Newton inside. Great hall, with long tables that are watched by a picture of Henry VIII Great punts to enjoy the river, with funny names, all of them related to the number 3

This is one of the many beautiful colleges in Cambridge and well worth a visit to see how lucky students are to study here. Marvel at not only the buildings but also the grounds. This is one of the many 'Must See' visits when in Cambridge.

Very interesting..,Prince Charle's attended here. Well worth a visit...well presented with a map and lots of interesting things to see & gives one a real understanding & feel of college life here. The chapel is really interesting. Newton attended here along with many other famous people with statues in entrance to the Chapel. Also the entrance fee is only £2... More

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.
