  • 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.
