Christ`s College (Cambridge)

Christ`s College is one of the famous colleges which collectively make up Cambridge University.

It is situated in St. Andrew`s Street.

Christ`s is a sister college to St. John`s College, and has a similar tower. It was built in 1505 in honour of Lady Margaret Beaufort, the mother of Henry VII, who founded both colleges.

It has a mediaeval court, and a range from the early classical period.

In the Fellows` Garden is a mulberry tree, one of those planted on the orders of James I in an effort to help the English silk trade.
