“Wonderful university”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2013

Quite beautiful and peaceful, with old buildings. We went there on Sunday, so there are not so many students there.

“NickandDebbie”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2013

We reluctantly joined a free guided tour, normally preferring to wander freely, but the tour guide - a student at the University- was so enthusiastic about the University's history, architecture and inclusive atmosphere that we had to stick with the tour. The libraries were particularly inspiring though we didn't see the vast underground one where all the studying is actually done! She also gave a good recommendation for lunch Atticus on Chapel Street.

“A must do!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2013

The tour starts at the visitor centre with a (for UK visitors) cheesy video but things improve dramatically once you get outside and are guided around the amazing buildings and listen to the well informed (student) guide. All very picturesque ... a New Haven 'must do'!
