400 years young - London's first college for free

Location: Barnard's Inn Hall, EC1N 2HH

Description: 'Gresham College' is an unusual institution of higher learning off Holborn in central London. It enrolls no students and grants no degrees.

For over 400 years Gresham Professors have given free public lectures in the City of London. The College is named after Sir Thomas Gresham, son of Sir Richard Gresham who was Lord Mayor in 1537-38 and who conceived the idea of building an Exchange modelled on the Antwerp Bourse. This was brought to fruition by Sir Thomas, on land provided by the City of London Corporation, and was given the royal appellation by Queen Elizabeth I.

In fact it can claim to be the first college in London, which is really rather impressive - an 'A-star' if you please!
