  • Visited Balliol College and were surprised about the quiet and beautiful place to live and study. The hall looked quite similar to the hall in the Harry Potter films ;-)) 
  • The University of Oxford is the 2nd oldest university in the world, spanning almost a millennia. It consists of individual colleges that form the university but each self-governing and separate. One of the oldest is Balliol College. Balliol has a large beautiful garden outside to enjoy the sun. My guide proclaims loudly that the Great Hall of Hogwarts and the Dining Hall at Balliol College as one and the same with one exception: there's no floating candles.

  • This is one of the not so busy colleges in Oxford, but also the most beautiful one.
  • Definitely the finest college in Oxford. Not that I'm biased.
  • A smallish, although well worth a visit, Oxford college. On weekdays you can get a quite reasonably price lunch at the Hall.
