“Trinity College. A Must See in Cambridge”
Reviewed 1 March 2014

This is what most people see as a typical Cambridge College.

For a couple of pounds you get a chance to see a limited part of the college and walk in the footsteps of Newton and more.

Access is limited to the court (mostly roped off) but the place is fantastic.

Make certain of opening, but you can often access the chapel and stunning Wren Library.

“Beautiful Heritage...worth a visit”
Reviewed 26 February 2014 via mobile

The colleges of Cambridge have really preserved their heritage. Its impressive and beautiful. Famous names like Newton studies here. Besides the standard of education, I can understand the students must be proud to be part of so much history. Enjoyed our day at Cambridge.

“Promises undelivered”
Reviewed 23 February 2014

Unfortunately, we entered expecting to see the chapel, hall and library as advertised outside the Gate, however, we only got to see the chapel, which was very nice. The hall and the library were closed. We were later informed by one of the guards there that the hall is not open for visitors since a few years now, and the library opens sometimes, but closes at others.

“Historic Beauty not to be Missed”
Reviewed 8 February 2014

I moved to Cambridge a year ago from California, and I just never tire of the beauty and history of this college. Whenever possible, I take visitors to see all that Trinity has to offer. It is really worth your time.
