The campus stretches from the town to the sea and it was cool to see the different buildings. My wife is a fan of William and Kate and easily spotted their dorm building.

If you walk the town you can’t miss this. The quad is really lovely. It’s spread throughout town. The chapel is really cool. Worth the stop.
