- Pembroke College was founded by James I in 1624 and a statue of the founder stands in the tower in Chapel Quad. The Hall, with its magnificent hammer beam roof, dates from the 19th century and has a wonderful collection of portraits by former students who subsequently achieved fame in various fields. The college chapel dates from 1732 and the stained glass, which was completed in 1900, is by Charles Kempe, also a former student. Visits are made by arrangement.
