Trinity College

Recommended
Trinity was founded in 1546 by Henry VIII whose statue stands over the Great Gate. It is the largest Cambridge college. The Great Court with its Renaissance fountain, designed by Thomas Neville, the architect who was responsible for the current layout of the buildings and King Edward's Tower (1432) (clocktower) form a remarkable complex. In the antechamber of the Perpendicular chapel stand statues of Trinity's most famous pupils, such as Newton, Macaulay and Bacon.
