  • It was the first college we came up to. Worth a visit, as it is the oldest college. Has some famous and interesting alumni. Visit the dining hall.  more »
  • Lightning to Oxford, step into the countryside, decided to flee from the College's most famous and crowded in a visit and tried this, more tiny but with a wonderful Gothic architecture, beautiful gardens full of peace and also at a very economical price. There are others who even do not charge entry but they weren't open when we arrived. Once you enter they leave you to stroll freely through the spaces open to visitors, and do not put stick if you take your food, always, is clear, that you do not stain the environment and use the bins. We had lunch a few sandwiches sitting on a bench in the gardens, while some students were playing croquet on the lawn, very british. Note the large dining room, the original courtyard, Chapel. It is worth. Actually, we are left with the desire to make a visit more long and calm to this charming city.

  • Balliol is the oldest University of Oxford. It is centrally located near the visitors information center. After payment of the entrance fee should the building in £3.00. The Hall is really impressive. Almost unimaginable that one now still eat this way. Also the Chapel is beautiful. You should have been there just the atmosphere.

  • Beautiful place to visit ,in the main hall here you definitely feel the harry Potter thing going on , many great people have studied here so really worth a visit as it's right in the city centre.
  • Welcoming college to visit with a wonderful feel. The architecture is representative of what I hoped to see in Oxford.
  • One of the most liberal college in Oxford. Sometimes the hall is open to public. Food is average but fantastic environment.
  • A lovely old college
  • incredible place. Amazing Chapel and gardens.
