Trinity College, Cambridge: 14 reviews and 36 photos


Trinity College is located on Trinity Street. Founded by Henry VII in 1546. Prince Charles, Sir Isaac Newton, Lord Byron, Francis Bacon, and Alfred Lord Tennyson were students here. The Wren Library was built between 1676 and 1690 by Sir Christopher Wren who also designed St Paul's Cathedral. Lord Byron kept a bear in his rooms at Trinity and he led it around the college on a chain. Look for the tree outside Trinity's gate, said to descend from Newton's famous apple tree.
