  • Perhaps my favorite of the colleges to visit mainly because it wasn't as crowded as Christ Church and was a beautiful place to wander around - when buying tickets (6 pounds for students) you get access to the cloister, chapel, and also the grounds which includes a meadow with deer in it as well as a walking path through the forest and garden. Was worth the entry fee
  • Visited bank holiday Monday which turned out to be lovely and sunny, took in the quaint stroll around Addisons walk / river Cherwell (you can find this walk easily on Google) - were looking forward to seeing the deer in the grounds but they were too far away to see too well and you couldn’t get closer as it was fenced off. Nice chapel & cloister area. Found a lot of areas were understandably private & so not accessible. Personally I think it should be free to go in on this basis as it wasn’t a very large place. £7.00 each is a bit steep in my opinion although it is steeped in history having Lewis Carrol listed as one of its famous lecturers.
