Jesus College

Jesus Lane Cambridge CB5 8BL

Go down ‘The Chimney’ (a ‘lane’ named from the French chemin) and through a gatehouse to reach a college laid out in 1496 over a Benedictine nunnery. To say Jesus College is steeped in history does an injustice to the the many other equally remarkable and ancient university buildings, all of which are as worthy of a visit, but there is no denying that this is a special place. You sense the ecclesiastical past in Cloister Court, on the right beyond the gatehouse, whose chapel retains the fabric of the early 13th-century church. The College's full name is actually "The College of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Saint John the Evangelist and the glorious Virgin Saint Radegund, near Cambridge", but we reckon the more common title taken from the chapel, Jesus Chapel, is a little more catchy.
