An oasis of calm in a busy city.

Beautiful old quads house student accommodation. The converted church at the end of Turl Street is the college library. Delightful!

Entry is free to Lincoln College, but there is not much to see. It is of interest if you are a fan of Rev John Wesley.

Let the people know you want to see the room of John Wesley, and someone will race to unlock the outer door to the room so you can look through the upper glass. For my pastor wife, this took her breath away. For others, visit to see the quad of this small college and the spectacular wall covering on the... More

Visited Lincoln College in Oxford as this is my sons preferred college in which to study. Its one of the smallest colleges in the city but also one of the most beautiful, quaint quads and wonderful architecture, just a great place to live and study

On gorgeous Turl Street very close to the covered market, Lincoln College is a hidden gem in the heart of Oxford. The chapel is very pretty, the quads have fantastically well-groomed lawns, and Lincoln has one of the best college bars at Oxford (Deep Hall)! Check out the iconic Lincoln library on the corner of Turl and High Street (not... More

Always loved the front quad - the extraordinary atmosphere. Lincoln is a fairly obscure college - but has some oddly typical old boys. For example, Frobisher Montescue - the last Englishman to be completely eaten by a wolf. Or John Le Carre, the master spy novelist. One of its more bizarre traditions is the St Frideswide's day hop - when... More

The porter was friendly to us. The college itself is not so large. There are two quads open to public and these are quite nice. It is impressive that in such a busy city a place like this can be so quiet. The entrance was free of charge, which makes it always worth the visit. The hall and chapel is... More

This is an attractive college with great charm. The library is housed in an old church and is wonderful and the chapel is small but lovely.

One of many colleges in Oxford, Lincoln College was well worth the visit and no charge, just check the opening times. Lovely quad, very unusual 'clock', lovely chapel with beautifully wooden carved figures and atmospheric dinning hall.
