Trinity College is the largest and one of the most prestigious colleges in Cambridge. It was founded in 1546 by Henry VIII and the majority of its buildings date back from the 16th and 17th century. More than thirty Nobel Prize winners attended Trinity College, as have a number of British Prime Ministers and royalty such as King Edward VII, King George VI and Prince Charles. The College is open to visitors from 10am to 5pm and an admission charge applies from March to November.
Fotheringhay is a small village with a surprisingly large church which dates to the time when this small Northants village was a very important place. The church was built in the 15th Century and is the burial place of Dukes and Duchesses of York including the parents of Richard III. When Mary Queen of Scots was locked up in the nearby Fotheringhay Castle, it is believed that she was given a room overlooking the (protestant) church to remind her constantly of the 'error of her ways' in being a Catholic.
The Church receives a lot of support from the Richard III Society who endowed it in 2000 with a new Organ.
King's College Chapel
King's College Chapel is, as the name implies, the chapel of King's College, one of the constituent colleges of the University of Cambridge. All the colleges have chapels, but this one is world famous as a crowning example of the English Gothic perpendicular style. Begun in 1441 at the instigation of Henry VI, it was not completed until 1531, by which time the technology and vision came together to create the intricate fan vault, the largest of its kind in the world. The chapel is also famous for its original 16th century stained glass. The physical setting of the chapel, on the lawns of the college beside the Cam, adds to its beauty.
The Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols, led by the chapel choir, is broadcast world-wide on Christmas Eve.
Entrance fees are £4.50 for adults, £3 for children and concessions.
Free entry to local residents and members of the university who can also take in two guests. An audio tour is £2.
Main entrance is through the north porch but there is a ramp for wheelchair users at the south porch.
Opening hours are complicated and affected by recordings and recitals. The website has a full page of opening hours through the year, so best check first. The Christmas Eve Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols is open to anyone, but tickets are not sold in advance, it's first come, first served. This means you have to be in the queue before 9.30am, you are let into the Chapel at 1.30pm and the service begins at 3pm.
Rockingham Castle was built 900 years ago for Richard the Conqueror and sits on the top of a ridge of hills giving views of the valley beyond, across five different counties.
Despite its address being listed as Market Harborough (a very attractive market town) it's actually closest to the industrial town of Corby and visitors would do better to follow road signs to Corby rather than Market Harborough
The Watson family who own the castle have lived there for 450 years and only one other family owned the castle before them.
The grounds and castle are open in the summer months - roughly from Easter to the end of September. Between Easter and the end of May they are only open on Sundays and Bank Holiday Mondays (of which there are two in May). From June to September they are open on Tuesdays, Sundays and Bank Holiday Mondays.
Opening hours are 12 noon to 5 pm.
If you can form a group of 20 or more visitors, they will open on additional days by prior appointment - there are links on the website to arrange such visits.
On open days the entry price is £7.50 for adults, £6.50 for Old Aged Pensioners and £4.50 for children up to 16 years of age. Dogs are welcomed in the gardens but not in the castle.
Special events such as Christmas Fayres and Craft Shows are held periodically - check the website for details. The castle is also available for weddings and other private functions.
