Really wanted to explore this place as my grandfather studied here in the 20s. Sadly it was closed to visitors so we could only see limited portions. Beautiful bits though.

Corpus Christi College was founded in 1352 by the local townspeople of Cambridge, and is one of the oldest colleges here. Small and old, beautiful and amazing, historical and interesting. Gorgeous grounds and courtyard. Connected to St. Benedict's Church.

This college has some very nice architecture and was founded by the local tradesmen of Cambridge in 1352. The old court is remarkable well preserved. St. Benedict's church is connected to the college by a gallery made of red bricks.

This beautiful old building is well worth the £2.50 admission charge. Visitors can walk around the court yard, taking in the architecture and gardens. There was a lovely quiet, studious ambience about the place on the early September day we visited - I don't know...More
