  • The iconic King's College! It's definitely up there in terms of grandeur and design, what a sight to behold some of the places inside here. I am lucky enough to have been back a couple of times and it is good every time. They throw a great party for their May Ball, always a bit different to the other colleges - King's Affair. It's great to punt past as well because the views of the gardens are different from that angle, but overall a very enjoyable experience, recommend a visit.
  • We visited in the morning on a bright upbeat day and had a tour guide. We were not allowed access as exam time, so that was a bit of a disappointing. Having said that this is one of the star colleges and views from the riverside are very good, may have to zoom in a bit to get a good photograph. From the front of the college views are nice and great
