Wills Hall

Wills Hall is one of the University’s best kept secrets. Set in beautiful grounds and built in the Strawberry Hill Gothic style, it has the look of a building much older than it really is. It was built around a quadrangle in the great tradition of academic buildings, and wouldn’t look out of place in Oxford or Cambridge. Enter through the imposing oak door and inside you’ll find a magnificent oak panelled banqueting room. In the grounds you’ll find a small chapel.
