I toured the hall, grounds and chapel of Christ Church. It was used in Harry Potter, which was cool to see. It is a beautiful college and a great way to get a sense of what life might be like for students there.

The magnificent university of Christ Church was at the centre of Hogwarts. The Catherdral Cloister appeared in the first film and the truly amazing Great Hall was used as a basis of the Great Hall of Hogwarts. I stayed here for a couple of nights...More

As far as I know, only members of the college can eat in the hall. It is not open to visitors for meals; only for touring when it is not being used for member meals.

No, unless you want to have dinner in the great hall which is possible sometimes, rather than just walk around in it.
