Pembroke or Queens for Cambridge Maths

I have to submit my choices today and I'm still a bit hung up on my choice of college for Cambridge. I wanted to explore these two colleges but sadly I didn't get a chance to during both open days.

I think both colleges are great, however I prefer the architecture and scenery of Pembroke to Queens (which is important part for me ngl lol).

The only problem is I feel like it would be harder to study mathematics there as there as a lot less people who apply to mathematics. I also prefer the tutorial system at Queens' to the one at Pembroke.

I would be happy studying at both but if anyone has any information regarding this (maybe accomodation, resources etc), can you let me know?
