  • Was to a small Conference in Oxford which took place in Merton College. Is very centrally located and can be well achieved. When you enter the gate by the College it's like at a time jump. The rooms in the historic buildings are not up to date and a little Spartan furnishings. But something else would not fit also. The buildings are all in very nice condition and what is even more important, it is not a museum but here is lived and worked. Very impressive also the main hall where there is also very good food. Also worth visiting the Church and especially the library. It is most beautiful but in the morning about the College to go, if not much is going on. It is so quiet and peaceful place and the feeling is then most in another time to be. Even if there were to complain about one thing or another, as a complete package there is the highest rating.

  • This college is one of the few where you have to pay to enter. The buildings are beautiful. The chapel is not really that unique. But it worth it.  more »
  • This is a school, a park, a church is a place where large parks and numerous hires admiration connected the buildings was a good place to walk was very old fashioned and in line with the practice of the city between the pipe aura was the choir's voices really was so impressive it seemed but an age-old activity, you hear the voice of the young people had less

  • This college feels both deeply historic and incredibly intimate. Some of the oldest parts of Oxford are within these walls and I found it to be a welcome contrast to the crowds of neighboring Trinity. The grounds provided ample opportunity to sit and think peacefully, and it wasn't hard for me to picture Tolkien being invigorated by the setting.
  • Beautiful college and free entry if you say you want to pray in the chapel. Formal hall food is vile.
  • Deeply historic
  • I visited the college for a conference in the TS Eliot Lecture theatre. It's a beautiful college and the lecture theatre is the best I've ever been to. Very comfortable leather seats, great catering in the old college hall, and lovely gardens to walk around between lectures.
  • Splendid
