My friends tell me stories about who and what are associated with this college. Set on the High, it's one of the colleges that add up to a beautiful street scene.

This college is located on the High Street opposite the Queens College. There is no admission charge but ask the porters to see if it is possible for you to take a look at the white marble Shelley memorial. Also ask if you can see the Wisteria in the Radcliffe Quad.
