Peterhouse College is the oldest college at the University of Cambridge; it was founded in 1284 (yes, TWELVE), and it certainly looks the part. Candlelight, spiral staircases, hidden studies, torches, even a dark bell tower. I felt like Harry Potter, feasting in the Great Hall. “Magical” really is the only word to describe it.
(Excuse the quality of the photographs. I didn’t want to lug my nice camera to the Christmas banquet, and the dim lighting made it hard to capture much via iPhone. But I did my best!).
