This is one of the few colleges that allows visitors. I went in to sign on Prof Hawking's condolence book and also to have a look. The college grounds and the chapel are free to roam around.

A beautiful College with opportunities for some great photos. Anybody who seen Porterhouse Blue with the great David Jason back in the 90s will feel they have gone back in time. The chapel is especially beautiful.
