Lovely 'feast' in the hall following a conference. Very reasonable bar and most helpful staff. All this in a 'classic setting'

This is a beautiful college founded in the 1880s. It's about a 10-15min walk out of central Cambridge, either along the main road and Sidgwick Avenue or through the Backs.

A lovely small college with beautiful gardens. The quad is very nice too, as is the chapel. Entry is free and it's not packed with tourists unlike some of the other colleges. Well worth a visit.
