  • The college is beautiful and so are the grounds! But what I want to write about are the chapel services. They are absolutely superb! The evening service at 6pm with the choir - great music, dimmed lig...  read more »

  • This is arguably the most beautiful of the Oxford colleges, well worth the £5 admittance fee. The cloister is reminiscent of some of the great monastic centers of Europe, with statuary and the mandatory pristine lawn in the centre. The architecture is superb, but what makes thus college truly lovely is the Addison's Walk. In the spring, this is a downright jewel of the city, with the reward of a small hillside of planted and wild flowers in full bloom. Truly a gem.
  • Nice garden and church. With 9 adults and 3 kids, we managed to negotiate a discounted entry price for £20 in total. (otherwise £5 per adult)
  • 1485 college open to the public during the day, the large square tower is seen as a landmark in the town. Old Kitchen bar accessible from the cloisters has pictures of famous actors performing after the making of the film 'Shadowlands'. Do mind your head on the low beams in the alcove. Choir sings from the tower roof on May morning.
  • Worst food of any Oxford college I've ever tasted.
  • Worth a visit if you're in Oxford.
