IMPORTANT - Visiting the Colleges

The colleges are private places where people live and work throughout the year. Visitors are usually welcome to walk through the courts, to visit the chapels and in some cases halls and libraries, but please remember that quietness is important. Staircases and other doors are private and walking on lawns is forbidden. Picnics and games are not allowed.

Please note that some colleges make an admission charge. During the examination time from mid-April to late June most colleges are closed to the public. Some colleges do not admit prams, dogs or push-chairs. Information about these restrictions is given on notice boards and at the college gates. Parties wishing to visit the colleges must be accompanied by a Cambridge Blue Badge Guide. Public walking tours for individuals leave from the Tourist Information Centre daily.
