We studied at Jesus so might be a bit partial here. The most recent visit was to see the daffodils on second court which are truly spectacular! We then sat on the cricket green and enjoyed the sunshine while our toddler ran around without any fear of hurting herself if she fell. We were the only ones there and it... More

This Cambridge College has some of th best grounds and gardens in Cambridge. The permenant sculptures are a delight and quite fun to find. The new Roost Cafe is as good as any Costa but insuch lovely surrounds it is hard to beat.

As a student here, it is rumoured that if you get caught riding the statues horse in the quad then you will be expelled. I can't speak to getting caught, but I definitely had a fun time sneaking in with some friends and riding the horse in the middle of the night. Don't tell the porters.

We came here for a business dinner and found the staff lovely and attentive. The food was wonderful and excitingly presented. They offer an extensive range of wines and champagne too. All this set in a brilliantly decorated private dinning room made for a really special evening. Thank you for a great memory.

We were fortunate enough to stay in the residence (Library Court) for three nights during a visit to Cambridge. While this college is not nearly as well known as others, it is quite beautiful and peaceful. The grounds are lovely. Our room was very comfortable. Wifi free! Breakfasts in the dining hall were quite good and plentiful. The porters were... More

Beautiful, steeped in history. The pavilion has a thatched roof! Worth looking round, but won't let the dog in.

Our daughter studied here over five years ago so went back with her to look around the grounds again.It has beautiful grounds, the "horse" is still in position. The college is a couple of minutes walk from the centre of town, on Jesus Lane, a very tranquil inner court. A great college to study. Jesus Green lies to the rear... More

The college is a tranquil haven within the splendour of ancient stonework. We stayed in the college rooms and were amazed at the level of comfort and cleanliness. Generous facilities and free wifi....beats any of the city hotels....how many of them can boast a heritage spanning centuries? The grounds are delightful and the porters and staff were extremely friendly and... More
