due to the restoration of the Dining Hall during 2022-2023, the College may be closed at short notice due to requirements of the building project. Please call the Porter’s Lodge on 01865 279900 just prior to your visit to check for any updates.

The college is normally open on weekends, although opening hours may vary due to private events.

The principal areas of Trinity that are normally open are the Dining Hall, Chapel and extensive gardens. Please be aware that Trinity College is a place of study all year round. You are asked not to enter staircases, college rooms and areas marked as private. Leaflets with a suggested walking route are provided.

The college is accessible for disabled visitors. The Chapel, Hall and gardens are all flat with no obstacles, though the ground is uneven in some places. We do ask our visitors to respect the following guidelines:

  • Dogs, except guide dogs, are not allowed in the college.
  • Children are very welcome, and should be supervised at all times.
  • Please do not walk on the grass in Front Quad.
  • CCTV is in use throughout the grounds.
  • Please be aware that our grounds have uneven surfaces.

We do hope that you enjoy your visit. Our visitor shop sells recordings by the chapel choir, various publications about Trinity and other subjects of interest, and other souvenirs.
