If you in Cambridge on Thursdays, go to the Wren Library. But check their website first. If you a Winnie Poo Fan, you'll be mighty surprised.

The interior is interesting but even more amazing is seeing Isaac Newton's own notebook with his handwriting and items from the author of Winnie the Pooh. All this available for viewing for free,

Beautiful interior where we got to see things like Isaac Newton's notebook (that's really his own handwriting) and items from the author of Winnie the Pooh. All very cool - especially considering that it's free to visit the library.

On a guided tour we were informed of the college's long history and riches. It has had about 30 Nobel laureates. The college alone. Truly amazing. Unfortunately we were not able to see any of the indoors.

The largest college, biggest quad and greatest number of nobel prize winners. Check out the statues in the chapel and see the Wren Library - all for £2

They charge you about 2 pounds to visit the lawns and the chapel.. just stand at the centre, and soak in history, I simply loved this place.

I approached it from the side entrance by Trinity Hall. The courtyards are splendid and give on the the river where one can lunch or watch the punts and even cross to St johns college. The Wrn library is splendid..one can exit also onto kings parade..

I have been to a few open seminars at Trinity College and have found each one to be educational, thought-provoking, and well-organized. I would recommend going to one if available!
