Henrietta, BA History of Art
Trinity Hall is the ideal home for an art history student. Hidden away in the centre of town, the college is within walking distance of the department and the Fitzwilliam museum, where you can study prints, drawings, and paintings first hand.
From medieval manuscripts in the Old Library to the Florentine altarpiece in the intimate chapel; Trinity Hall boasts a rich artistic heritage, which is kept alive today through the staging of contemporary exhibitions. And to top it all off, the library is well stocked, so you can work overlooking the river in the comfort of your own college.
Being an Art History student, the Fitzwilliam Museum has become my second home. It is the city’s hidden treasure, housing an incredible range of art from French Impressionism to Italian Renaissance; Islamic pottery to 20th-century sculpture.
It is easy to lose a whole afternoon wandering the galleries, sketching and studying works of art.
Beyond the galleries, you can read quietly in the well-stocked library, grab a coffee with friends, or browse the eclectic gift shop. Behind the grand façade, the Fitzwilliam Museum provides the perfect escape from the bustle of Cambridge life.
