St Stephen's House

Stayed in college rooms at St Stephens. Value for money and cooked breakfast. Clean and comfortable and if you don't want to spend a fortune it's very reasonably priced.

The address is only the admin block. The university consists of many different colleges any one of which is worth a visit. For the best experience join one of the official tours which are usually excellent.

Oxford and its history are very interesting. From the historical perspective to its modern history (where Bill Clinton didn't inhale), the place is very cool. I'm not a Harry Potter fan, but my daughter and niece are and they saw a lot of the places in the movie there. Either way, if you have the time, this place is worth... More

The whole town of Oxford is a beautiful place and of course the university of Oxford was also a intricate place to visit. :)

Excellent. Make the effort. My wife and I and our four children [15,13,10& 8] took the walking tour from the tourist centre and it was great. The guide had a thorough knowledge of the history of Oxford and how that compared with the modern university of today.

What a marvelous world treasure. I was in a state of constant wonderment. But, in Oxford I was intellectualy challenged. And, it is a wonderful place to explore, gawk, wander, eat, drink and revel in history.

History is great, this is the icon of Oxford itself. Amongst the college I would not miss is Christ Church, which is worth visiting espite the ticket price you have to pay. Great experience!

History buffs and anyone who loves UK buildings. This is a must in a trip to Europe. I did a hop on hop off tour and it was well worth it. I would love to go back

Oxford is so huge. You'd better take ree 2 hours tour guide. You wont miss a thing like the university itself from so many colleges, harry potter movie set, etc

This was our second visit to the University. The last time was thirty one years ago but we would not miss the opportunity to see the campus again. There is so much history here. If you ever make it to that area don't pass up a chance to visit. We hope to go back again soon
