    The place is very impressive and is situated close to the Radcliffe camera in the Centre of Oxford. Since September, a couple of hours with 2-4, you can visit some of the premises absolutely for free.

    This educational institution is almost impossible to visit. There they learn of doctor and magisty. But so much impressive appearance and history.

  • It is more open than you ever imagined. Have a go if it is a normal afternoon except Sunday.
  • The public can visit and walk in the courtyard during some afternoons, but there is not much to see without going inside.
  • Wonderful building. A visit worth.
  • Definitely one of the must-sees in Oxford. It's a huge, magnificent college and one of the most prestigious.
  • Magnificent and rich building collection sweating centuries of knowledge. Though a bit austere
