広々としたキングスに比較して、クィーンズはコンパクトに集約された対照的なカレッジでした。学生寮を脇にした学舎に、歴史からコンピューターまで色々な学びが集約されている。600年以上の歴史の重々しさを感じることが出来ました。 more »Compared to the spacious Kings, Queens was a compact and contrasting college. In the school building with the dormitory aside, a variety of lessons are gathered from history to computers. I was able to feel the weight of more than 600 years of history.
I've been to Queens' a few times over the years and have enjoyed each visit. One time was as a tourist and another as a guest for a Christmas meal. It's an iconic place in Cambridge and should be included as part of any tour of the city.
Fascinating place and not as expensive as the entrance fee for the other colleges. Worth a visit.
