  • One of the prettiest schools in the Oxford area. The chapel was beautiful, the choir was practicing while we were there, making it a magical experience.  more »

  • A bit boring for tourists. You can’t access to many rooms and if the weather is not great walking along its beautiful meadow is not that great
  • Magdalen College is one the best known Oxford Colleges, in part due to its location by the River Cherwell, and it's association with punting. It also has a great garden with relaxing, pleasant walks and a great view of Magdalen Bridge. It is also known for its May Day tradition in which its choir greets May Day by singing from the Chapel Tower at 6:00 AM. In recent years, students from the crowds gathering on the bridge to watch this dawn greeting have taken to jumping into the shallow waters of the River Cherwell which has resulted in serious injuries sadly.
  • Beautiful college in terms of architecture, grounds and very pleasant bar and outside terrace. It is a shame that the same attention could not be said of the toilet facilities. The ladies toilets were pretty disgusting and inexcusable given the number of visitors. It was reported but not taken very seriously.
  • What a wonderful place to take a walk. The Addison walk and the fellow garden are a must see.
  • 🇬🇧 Magdalen College and its iconic Tower, completed in 1509, is a bell tower that forms part of Magdalen College.
