Trinity College, Cambridge attracts a lot of myths, very often based on exaggerations of its wealth and power. Many of these myths are deliberately created and spread among gullible freshers at the start of a new year. Myths I've heard (and confirmed as false) include:

  • Trinity College owns the whole of Manhattan
  • You can walk from Cambridge to Oxford / London / wherever entirely on land owned by Trinity College
  • Members of Trinity College have won more Nobel prizes than the whole of France
  • Tony Blair applied to, and was rejected by, Trinity College
