4.3
#1 of 15 in Historic Sites in Oxford
In addition to serving as the cathedral church for the diocese of Oxford, Christ Church is one of the largest colleges of the University of Oxford. Traditionally considered the most aristocratic college of its university, the institution has produced thirteen British prime ministers, equal to the number produced by all 45 other Oxford colleges combined. John Locke, John Wesley, Robert Peel, William Gladstone, and W.H. Auden studied here, to name just a few notable alumni. Throughout its history, the college’s world-famous Cathedral Choir has attracted many distinguished composers and organists, with many award-winning recordings to its credit. Guided tours of the site’s historic buildings and its well-known art collection are available weekly. Personalized tours, tailored to individual interests, can also be arranged.

  • Christ Church is a must not only if you are a Harry Potter fan, the building is simply stunning, even though the entrance fee is a bit pricey in my opinion.  more »
  • The Christ Church cathedral and College is one of the most famous attractions in Oxford, you pay 8 pound to enter but absolutely worth it, is something that has to be seen if you go to Oxford. Is a complex with College, with beautiful inner courtyards, spectacular Cathedral and in the dining hall you seem to be in Harry Potter.

  • Impressive historical part of Oxford. Great buildings and beautiful paintings adorn this place. Worth the visit even though it's a bit pricey to enter.
  • Wonderfully historical place,but don't forget it's actually a university dormitory, centrally located in the middle of Oxford. Breakfast in the great Hall great
  • Beautiful architecture and rich in history. Sadly we didn't had time for the tour but I reckon it'd be worth it
