  • One of the colleges that should be on visitors' lists like Keble. It is graduate only and very difficult to join. Looking in through the gate in Radcliffe Square you can get a taste of architectural style to be found inside. You also get a good view view from the spire of St Mary's Church next door.
  • Beutiful college among the 37
  • It is more open than you ever imagined. Have a go if it is a normal afternoon except Sunday.
  • King Athelstan from All Souls College Chapel
  • The public can visit and walk in the courtyard during some afternoons, but there is not much to see without going inside.
