Excellent place to sample collegiate life

One of the older colleges and diverse architecture to enjoy, as well as the Mathematics Bridge. Lovely women on the entrance are almost worth the entrance fee in their own right.

Queen's college is one of the oldest and largest colleges in cambridge. The college spans both sides of the river Cam, colloquially referred to as the light side and the dark side, with the Mathematical Bridge connecting the two.

Visited as part of a tour organised by by Tourist Information Centre for £12 (OAP rate). Went into the chapel and peeped into the student's restaurant. We were told lots of facts about its long history.

Highly understated with only £3 admission but the self guided tours takes you to see the Old Court which looks much like it did when built in 1448!! It is stunning. You can also visit the Wooden Bridge and walk over it, often referred to as the Mathematical Bridge.

We enjoyed a lovely Christmas Dinner in some of the oldest parts of the college. The food was tasty and hot, which is not alwys the case in some of these colleges when they are catering for a vast number.
