  • St Edmund's is a lovely building with beautifuls gardens. I particularly liked the statue of the seated monk close to the church. Well worth a visit if you are touring Oxford.  more »
  • Physically much smaller than the well known ones but very interesting due to its age . The old church was good, the main building is just one of so many of these type in Oxford - beautiful!  more »
  • lovely and wonderful and the garden is one of the most prettiest and cosiest. Had great view from my room (topfloor) which was perfect and very conducive to reading and learning and studying.  more »

  • A joyous place. Why people insist in comparing it to Keble I have no idea. One a gothic neo-masterpiece, the other an example of late middle-ages splendour. If you cannot see the beauty in both, then perhaps Dubai is more to your liking. As for the person looking for a hall full of teddy bears, it’s in the second quad, just after the entrance to Wonderland.
  • A lovely old college, quite small, but with an interesting quad and library
  • Initial expectations were quickly dashed by the inconveniently sized entrance arch. I was surprised to see it was so small, especially in comparison to the standard majestic Oxford style, such as is displayed at Keble. Whilst willing to forgive this initial offence, the proceeding 10 minutes can only be described as the foulest of my life. The general atmosphere made the canteens of Mos Eisley appear amicable, whilst the number of puffer jackets on such a warm summers day left me deeply confused. Why does this place exist? Where is the Teddy Hall that people speak of? Which way to KEBLE? These were a few of the questions I was left with as I made my escape.
  • Inferior to Keble in every single way except in how inferior it is to Keble. Wow bad !!
  • St Edmund Hall is one of the smaller colleges in Oxford. Although it is one of the oldest institutions of the University of Oxford, it only officially become a college around 50 years ago. A highlight of the college is the food. It is the best food that I came across at Oxford college, maybe only rivalled by Nuffield College. Also notable is the college library, which is housed within one of the oldest remaining churches in Oxford.
