£3 each to get in and most of it closed. The access was mainly one hall and the courtyard but even so it was an interesting historic site.

Trinity college is one of the cheaper colleges to enter. The chapel is amazing. The grave stones in the floor make for very interesting thoughts of the history of the place.

The best part of your visit will undoubtedly be the church and display of past students and teachers from Trinity. This college has produced more luminaries than any other Cambridge college and the church service area is spectacular

The college is old, smells of long academic traditions, has a beautiful park, old buildings, and a good seminar I went to.

Really beautiful place with a spectacular courtyard and filled with great history. Must try the Wren Library where I could observe the letters sent by Ramanujan, the famous mathematician to his Cambridge tutor. The hall is also nice decorated with portraits of former college deans...More
