Short walk from city Centre. At the Northampton St/Madingley Rd end of Queens Rd close to Garrett Hostel Lane.


On the opposite side of the Backs is the Fellows’ Garden, which includes a delightful herb garden, a secluded wooden gazebo, and is the venue for open air Shakespearean plays during the summer. There is also an elegant sundial, inscribed with the words: ‘In sapientia ambulate tempus redimentes’ (‘Walk in the ways of wisdom, redeeming the time’, echoing Colossians 4:5); an appropriate motto for a place of learning.
