In the Uk the public toilets are everywhere cleaned!!! I think they cleaned them for days given the low turnout and the mountain of dirt. I got away without having the courage to take a picture but we alerted the ticket office

  • 5 pounds per person, campus is great
  • The most beautiful of Oxford colleges in my (slightly biased) opinion.
  • Wonderful college to visit and walk around. Beautiful architecture, vast park area with a deer park inside of it. £5 entry fee.
  • Very beautiful college with lots of areas to explore and walk through. We especially liked Addison's Walk!
