Charles Darwin studied theology in Christ's College in 1828 and lived in this house, though his passion was Natural Science, particularly beetles at that time. Darwin met many leading naturalists through the university. After Cambridge, he joined the good ship Beagle for the 5 year South America journey that triggered The Theory of Evolution.
Most colleges charge a modest entry fee and open at various times but generally around 10am - 3.30pm/ 5pm, with more limited times on Sundays. Times vary slightly according to whether you visit during term or not, so check before planning your schedule.
