  • Certainly was outstanding and the pigeons contribute to it. The beauty is due to the complementary nature of the stone and the surrounding area. I have often use this as a meeting place and I have never missed a friend because of it, nor have I ever been late if this has been my destination. Great!
  • With this at the end of st giles its the main focal point for all visiting tourist to the city of oxford
  • I have no opinion. Is okay I guess. Does the job, memoriates well
  • A number of people were burned for practising their Faith slightly differently from the main religion of the Day. Most countries have moved on since those days. There's missing tarmac on Broad Street 2 mins walk away where the 'heretics' met their end. No doubt they're in Heaven while their persecutors are in a very hot place! For foreign visitors Magdalen is pronounced Maudlin. (It's a southern thing)
  • Great people deserve great monuments.
