I was fortunate enough to recently attend a Friday evensong service here in the lovely chapel at Queens. The music was soaring. The choir is truly wonderful and the blend of voices is superb. Meaningful service, with only a few in attendance. The chapel itself is simpler than some of the other college chapels, but the candlelight chandeliers were a... More

All Colleges in Oxford are beautiful, historic and interesting. They all have great courtyards, their own library and church and Dining/Ball Halls. For Harry Potter fans Queens college is a must The Staircase and Dining Hall is in pretty much all of the movies.

Technically-speaking, The Queen's College in the University of Oxford is one of the very few which aren't open to members of the general public each weekday afternoon - either completely free or for a nominal entry fee - on a walk-up basis. Like the extremely up-market house which it is, viewing of the beautiful Neoclassical buildings located halfway along the... More

A good college to visit if you've only got a few minutes. If you want photographs you can take them from the high street and then there are more photo opportunities inside the college grounds.

Queen's College hold Choral Evensong at 6:30 two or three times a week. The 30+ choristers make a beautiful sound and even if you are not religious, the peace, beauty of the chapel and music you experience, is well worth the visit. There was plenty of space when we visited - congregation of 15 and the service lasts approximately 35... More

I attended an organ recital in the beautiful chapel. Lovely to sit and listen to music and admire the beautiful stained glass windows, carved wood interior and ceiling painting

My daughter attended this college so I'm probably biased. Beautiful grounds with a wonderful little chapel set within the grounds .Also a fabulous dining room. I've also stayed here as a guest and can highly recommend the breakfast.

What a great experience! Check in is marvellous, your actual 'Porterhouse Blue' character (i know that was set in Cambridge) greets you and gives you all the info. The view from our room was worth the price alone. We overlooked the back quad which is one of those typical spaces you see in an episode of Morse, beautiful manicured grass... More

We did the City of Oxford walking tour and the guide was able to access Queen's College. It was fascinating to go behind the walls and see the inside of an institution that is hundreds of years old. We were very lucky to gain access to the college dining room, a real privilege.
