Wren library: When in Trinity College, visit Wren Library to see the priceless collection of 55000 books, all published before 1820. AA Milne’s original Winnie the Pooh is one such invaluable book to be found here.
Low hotel rates: If you’re traveling on a budget, consider visiting in December as hotel charges are at their lowest. If visiting during peak tourist season (February, August, March), book well in advance to get the best rates.
