Beautiful college, cheap entrance fee. The dining hall is open at 2 pm. Very pretty. Not exactly like one in Harry Potter but close

Beautiful college. Perfectly located. Worth a visit for anyone visiting Oxford. It is a magical experience to walk through the old buildings. It is one of the oldest colleges in Oxford.

38 or is it 39 colleges in Oxford. So many are very similar and all can be visited bar one or two. This one is excellent if only having the time for one. 4 PMs went here including the current at times of writing! Don’t let that put you off. Excellent examples of the great hall
