Magdalene is certainly the place to visit if you want to get a feeling of a close-knitted college of Cambridge, without having to be followed by flocks of tourists, and paying expensive entry fees.
The last college regarded as "in town", a neighbour of St. John's College, Magdalene College is the third smallest college, not very well known, even to undergraduates here.
One of the best Fellows' Garden, a pebbled path bounded with great trees, the best place to have a stroll before sunset. Also to note is the row of cherry blossom next to the river.
Best time to visit: March - April (Daffodils and cherry blossom bloom period)
Open almost all the time throughout the year except exam term (late April - late June).
Lock after 6pm.
Tip for college visits: hide your camera on the entrance and "stroll like you belong"
