Check out the old school through the main gate off of university road. The courtyard areas are very beautiful. Great, historic building.

A beautiful trip out for a Bank Holiday. The campus is historic and ancient with a real feel on every corner, such amazing architecture coupled with modern and stylish grounds.

I came to check out the architecture, particularly The Cloisters, as well as the Hunterian Museum/Gallery. It was a sunny day, perfect for walking around in the quadrangle/grounds to gawp at the castle-like towers and turrets.

The cloisters are impressive and fun/challenging to photograph.

Tremendously scenic place to view with amazing buildings. Aside from being a series of educational buildings, the university has so much to see (such as the museum and gallery). A fabulous place to walk around and admire the architecture.

Definitely worth a visit. The architecture is amazing. It is so beautiful that it has become an attraction and a brand for the city. Walk around the campus with the Harry Potter soundtrack in your mind for maximum effect. :)
