Royal Holloway ranks among the most beautiful universities

Posted on 04/09/2012

It’s official – Royal Holloway is one of the world’s most beautiful universities!

Royal Holloway is listed today in the Daily Telegraph alongside Oxford, Harvard and Sydney Universities as one of the 16 most picturesque universities in the world. A stunning photograph of the spectacular Founder’s Building shows the Victorian red-brick building in all its glory.

Visitors interested in viewing the Grade I listed Founder’s Building can take advantage of Heritage Open Day on Sunday (9 September), when the College will be opening its doors to the public.

Heritage Open Day is an annual event that celebrates England’s architecture and culture by allowing visitors access to interesting properties that are either not usually open to the public, or would normally charge an entrance fee.

Visitors will be able to book Picture Gallery Tours and Campus Tours on the day and will have the rare opportunity to visit the former Holloway Sanatorium (Virginia Park). For more information visit our Events page
