Emmanuel College

St Andrew’s Street Cambridge CB2 3AP

A four-square façade hides an aristocratic courtyard backed by a Baroque chapel designed by Christopher Wren in 1666. One of the larger university colleges it was founded in 1584 by the then Chancellor the Exchequer to Elizabeth I, Sir Walter Mildmay. Stained glass inside commemorates a now more famous college figure, John Harvard, a 17th-century student who bequeathed a minor American college his library of 400 books and £779. It returned the favour and became Harvard University.
