The Library is open to all members of Trinity College. It consists of the student library (Reading Room and Lower Library), the Law Reading Room and the historic Wren Library. The Wren Library is currently closed to members of the public. Academic readers may consult the special collections by prior appointment.
The College clock is housed in one of the oldest buildings in Trinity: King Edward’s Gate, otherwise known simply as the clock-tower. This gate originally formed a grand entrance to King’s Hall, a foundation which was dissolved in 1546 and joined with Michaelhouse to found the new College of the Holy and Undivided Trinity.
The Chapel and Choir
Trinity College Chapel was built during the reigns of Mary and Elizabeth I, and was intended to be the place where the Master, Fellows and Scholars of the College made their daily acts of worship, as an integral part of their life and study.
Trinity College gardens extend for 36 acres including the obviously well known areas such as Great Court, Trinity Backs and the plot of grass outside Great Gate where “Newton’s Apple tree” stands.
