It's one of the most impressive of all the Cambridge colleges, in common with Christ Church Oxford founded by Henry VIII. The entrance price is modest: £3 for an adult and £1.50 for a child. Payment is cash only at the porter's lodge. We struggled...More

Great view, especially in fall or spring. During winter time it looks also great but with sunlight and green/dried leaves, it looks really pretty.
