Postcard from St. John’s College, Cambridge

Following on the theme from earlier this week

St. John's College, Cambridge - L. Flewelling

St. John’s College, Cambridge – L. Flewelling

While there were definitely things to appreciate about being member of a college which does not have tourists coming through and peaking into the windows of students’ rooms, one of my favorite things to do in Cambridge is wandering through the gorgeous old college grounds.  St. John’s College was founded in 1511 and its buildings date from that year, but the college contains a pleasing array of architectural styles as it was added to over the centuries.
