Christ’s College

St Andrew’s Street Cambridge CB2 3BU

John Milton and Charles Dickens passed through the Great Gate of Christ’s, which bears the arms of Lady Margaret Beaufort, Henry VII’s mum, who founded it in the mid-1440s. Neither were devoted students: Darwin spent his time collecting beetles, Milton loafing around in Fellows’ Garden – the inspiration, the story goes, for Paradise Lost. Even within cambridge the college has one of the highest academic reputations, however, and the majority of people loafing around nowadays are tourists enjoying the wonderful architecture of the college buildings. The old windows and the fort-like walls make it a distinguished building in the streets of Cambridge.
