The campus & its buildings are so so so beautiful. Its complete in itself with so many departments of specialisation. It even has a museum, a lovely tulip garden & the most beautiful architecture.

A lovely place to visit at anytime of the year but in spring the cherry trees make it memorable. A bit like a real live Hogwarts! The spires and quads are very picturesque. The Hunterian museum has some interesting exhibits. The hop on / off tourist bus stops on university avenue.

A grand place to visit and certainly a fun place just to wonder around and see what's what. Staff were also very friendly and welcoming
