  • The third-oldest college of Cambridge and originally endowed by Marie de St Pol, Countess of Pembroke and founded 1347. The college Gatehouse is the oldest in Cambridge, dating from the 14th century.....  more »
  • We were allowed a visit of the college and found it really enjoyable hour. The Porter who met us was great, really helpful and a real credit to the college. Lovely grounds.  more »

  • Did not enter the buildings, but the grounds and outside were simply stunning. It was a pleasure to walk through and enjoy. We were able to go into the chapel, which again was a beautiful space. We were very lucky that this college allows visitors on its grounds. Photos do not do it justice.
  • Popped in here as a visitor and while almost other colleges were close and or charged entry this one was free to look around. It does not have the grandeur of some of the other colleges but the Victorian architecture is impressive and the scale of the courtyards and wild garden are more appealing. Seems like it would be a lovely place to live and study. The chapel build by Wren is very impressive.
