  • Lovely day at the college. The entrance fee was totally worth it, as you are left to stroll at leisure through the lovely gardens and enter the grand dining hall. Don't miss the Deer Grove!  more »
  • The visitors entrance to Magdalen College is located across the street from the entrance to the Oxford Botanic Garden. The college’s tower is an easy landmark to recognize. In addition to the tower, y...  more »
  • It was a nice experience because it was the first colleague we did. The majority of the buildings are private and therefore not accessible. You can see the indoor garden and the dining room. Large, typical, also large garden. The deer are in a closed inaccessible part of that garden. 7 pounds is affordable, but don't expect too much of it.

  • Really beautiful college. Only a stones throw from where I live. They have deer in this college which was really amazing to see, especially in the city.
  • Probably one of the few colleges that looks more like a monastery or abbey than a college academically. Really nice gardens and greens, it's even got a pretty good deer park at the back. For a tourist, a lot of areas are closed for private only and so I can only speak for the accessible parts, which is just gorgeous when you go there by sunset (or sunrise) that just brings out the best of this place, the shadows and the light. Not free admission but that makes it so quiet without a lot of group tourists and it's just really worth a visit.
  • Beautiful and seceret place.
  • Beautiful buildings and surroundings.
  • Magdalen College is a very old school founded in 1458. I would add that I particularly liked the magnificent Magdalen Chapel and the River Cherwell that passes around the college.
