Downing College

Memory by Matt Mayer

In my completely unbiased opinion, the best college in Cambridge. Gravel paths encircle “The Paddock”, a large grassy area surrounded on three sides by neoclassical buildings. Student legend has it that Trinity College bribe Downing not to complete the 4th side to avoid Trinity Great Court losing its position as the University’s largest quad. John Cleese of Monty Python fame studied here and it is said he thought of the idea for the Ministry of Silly Walks while watching students dodge puddles on the paths.
