You don't see much of the school but what you do see is spectacular mediaeval architecture with a tour by a knowledgeable guide. Fabulous for history and architecture fans!

I visited on a spring morning and spent the most wonderful hour learning about the history of the college and the boys who study there. The architecture is magnificent and the history well documented and brought to life by Julia, the tour guide.
