  • I'm paraphrasing from a Merton library Latin window inscription picked out by Cameron (a DPhil student) giving the college tour. Aimed at the students it's also relevant to the time-pressed tourist. W...  more »

  • Beautiful college and free entry if you say you want to pray in the chapel. Formal hall food is ok.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Deeply historic
  • Splendid

Where to stay in Oxford

An inexpensive alternative to Oxford's pricey hotels, historical college room lodgings provide visitors with an opportunity to experience the city's old-world academic atmosphere without having to pass exams. Offering more than just comfortable beds and warm meals, centrally located college B&Bs provide visitors with a glimpse into the ancient world of Oxford academia.
