A friend of mine did her PhD here and I asked her what its claim to fame was and the coolest thing that she told me is Oliver Cromwell's head is buried there! I am told its somewhere in the chapel but its a secret. If you don't know who he is, see my blog about him and why he is important to the history of England and this area.
The college opened in 1596. I could rattle on the great history of this college but this page does it better.
All the Best!
