  • Without doubt, the most interesting building in Oxford. The shape is totally different from other buildings, but at the same time harmonizes with them. Too bad it's not open for tourists.

  • A most amazing and beautiful building, brilliant bit of Architecure that houses part of the Bodlean library. If you do the walking tour, they will cover this masterpiece. 
  • It's a reading room private. Is put in, of course (I'm? Day possibly get? ), So just take the crackles and party photos from the outside, over the round, distinctive and interesting buildings. 6 million books located in it. To a lot of people took photos. And it means that the room is that the camera was surprised by it.

  • The Radcliffe Camera. No, it isn't a camera belonging to Radcliffe. It's a library facility that's part of the Bodleian Libraries, with Camera here meaning "room" in Latin. I did had the confusion while looking at this thing and for awhile my impression was that this was an observatory of sorts and had expected a telescopic camera to extend out of its dome roof. Sorry, I'm a Latin noob.
  • A classic Oxford sight - if you're visiting the city, do make sure you see it. You'll need to be a member of the Bodleian to get inside, however.
  • Beautiful and unique building. The library itself is great for studying. It can get very busy during term time and all the desks fill up by 9.30am. There's something quite wonderful about working in the building.
  • Quite good to snap a picture of... one of the important buildings in oxford...
  • The second floor of the Radcliffe Camera is one of the most inspirational places to study in Oxford. One of the highlights of studying in Oxford.
