This large building was completed in 1730 and has a real presence, set to one side from King's College. This is used for official engagements and important visits.

I viewed this as the hub of Cambridge uni, where all things admin take place. It was closed when we went, but the exterior was beautiful and well maintainned. Would love to see inside one day.

Went for graduation ceremony. Building is nice and the surroundings are kept tidy. Building is not very exciting. The grounds are nice.

It was a nice change of pace to see this. If you want some knowledge this is a must visit. It may not be he best for young ones.

Alas no opportunity to see the inside. Magnificent exterior in keeping with the splendour of Cambridge. I hope I can see inside one day!

I had the pleasure of enjoying the lawns and the inside of this building where graduation ceremony was held. It is great to view from outside, as it to take a closer look at the grand door, the statue in the middle of the lawn...More

Lovely looking building next to the main Chappel. You can look at it and enjoy the marvellous detailed exterior...unfortunately I have no idea how and if anyone can take a look inside.

It's a very nice white-fronted building next to King's College. We only looked at the outside of it. I've no idea whether it is ever open for public visitors.

Thank WMIM
