The architecture is wonderful and I was astounded by the chapel. The grounds are so peaceful after the noise and bustle of the city centre. There is also a walk along the river bank. As an added bonus there were no queues to get in.

Beautiful authentic building, fantastic chapel, renovated library and amazing tower. The small restaurant inside has great value with excellent food. Must see.

This was the favorite college I visited in Oxford. The windows in the chapel are astonishing. Great grotesques around the quad walls. I walked around the meadow and was surprised by a red deer which stared at me from behind the bushes. I recommending an...More
