Christ's is a relatively small college which is centrally located. There is no fee for visitors to enter, and it is generally open during the day. The porters are friendly and welcoming. The initial court - "First Court" - is historic (15th/16th century) and elegant with a lovely chapel. Second court includes the 1640s Fellows' Building. Third Court has buildings from late 19th century to mid-20th century, and lastly the modern New Court completed in 1970.

We were here when their pumpkin carving (for Halloween) competition was being displayed, and to add to the atmosphere there was a bat flying around!

The gardens are all decorated for the coming graduation. Everything is brightly colorful, flowers everywhere, I would reccommend to come to the college around end June and start July
