Pembroke college is located on trumpington street in Cambridge. It is listed in the higher education category. It has a beautiful building and great lawns. The college is the third-oldest college of the university. About seven hundred students are there. A good quick visit is suggested.

So It was a delight to visit it's name sake. What a lovely garden and church. We visited during a restricted visitor time but were still able to get an overview.

We popped in by chance and were able to walk round the grounds These are beautiful and give you a glimpse of what it must be like to live in a college.

It is unfortunate that this college doesn't have any outdoor seating - it's a superb and spectacular college with beautifully manicured lawns. The Fellows Lawn is particularly nice overseen by the statue of its famous son, William Pitt. The chapel is old and full of character. It has a 15th Century stone carving of St Michael and the Virgin opposite... More

Visited here during Open Cambridge weekend. Porters were helpful and friendly (not always the case in Cambridge I find) and the grounds and buildings interesting and delightful.

Nice college - interesting to see the chapel and buildings. You can visit it for free and this can be part of strolling through the town.

My friend took me to this college to show me the college/uni she aspires to go to (Pembroke college). I was amazed by its beauty! The fresh cut lawns as well were breath taking. The place itself was amazing, I cannot mention on the teaching though hopefully it is just as good (as seen from results)

Visiting Pembroke was part of our Visitor Center Tour. Pembroke was unexpectedly a great visit. Its buildings provide views of different architectural styles and it has some of the oldest buildings in Cambridge. The gardens are well kept and beautiful. Well worth a visit

Pretty college at Cambridge U. Visited for the summer program. Registration took place in the Old Library, one of the oldest buildings still in use at the university. Beautiful and picturesque buildings, no pedestrians allowed on the grass (only on special occasions). Pembroke is one of the colleges that does not charge admittance fee to view the college, probably because... More
