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'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.
