Accepting both postgraduate and undergraduate students, this is considered one of the most cosmopolitan of the Cambridge Colleges since more than two-thirds of its students come from outside the United Kingdom.

Wolfson is practically unknown outside of a limited circle, and is very rarely frequented by tourists.

The food is superb and so is the venue, wines are perfectly matched to the courses and on this years menu was a souffle... More

The College is worth a visit if happen to be at the West-side of Cambridge. The people are friendly, the gardens are pretty (especially around the library area), and the bar drinks are cheap! :)
