Commissioned and begun in the reign of Queen Mary, this is a wondrous place with a fascinating history and impressive list of College members and well worth an hour or so of one's time.

This was a nice college to look at. I liked the architecture at St. John's a bit more. But this one has a lot of neat history. Worth taking a look at. Don't miss King's College chapel next door.

The Shakespeare Festival production of Macbeth in the college gardens, performed under the trees, was a wonderful experience and a superb production. Outstanding performers, unforgettable!
