The entrance fee was quite expensive. There were too many people inside, especially The Hall. I did not enjoy it that much

When my family suggested going to visit Christ Church, I was a bit taken aback by the idea of visiting a university when I have already seen a million universities.. but this is really something else. It was spectacular! And the man who worked there was so lovely and obviously enjoyed talking to the tourists and guests, which made a... More

Christ Church may be rather commercial in charging for a look around but there is plenty to see - Harry Potter film locations, Alice in Wonderland references, beautiful Cathedral, lovely quads. I went to 'the other place' but brought my girls (8 and 11 years) here to see what Oxford can offer by way of atmosphere and sheer charisma. I... More

The Christ Church College is really impressing. The architecture as well as the Hall, the Potraits and the cathedrale.

This is another perl of Oxford. Must visit... can't miss it. The atmosphere is really impressive. Take the guided tour...really great value for your money. The gardens outside are fantastic and inside you can see where the film shooting took place...evev though they say the film was "photoshopped" to look better.

Nearly a 20 minute line to get in, but I persisted only because I really wanted to visit the cathedral. The Harry Potter fans in front of me were extremely excited about the hall - the staff member in there was actually quite rude to them when they touched the table. I'm not saying they should have touched it, but... More

We visited Oxford and decided to look around ONE college to get a sense of the university, rather than wander along. It was well worth it. Christ Church has plenty to see from the wonderful grounds, buildings, halls, quod, library and cathedral onsite. It was amazing to walk along the well worn staircases and paths that have been trodden by... More

The college is famous for its dining hall which was included in the Harry Potter films. This makes this college main attraction for large tourist groups which may make the experience a bit trying one but persist. The college is lovely and the dining hall is spectacular. Really nice guides in place who can provide a lot of information which... More

You get real eyesight behind the walls of an Oxford Uni. The dining hall is in daily operation and worth a visit as is the staircase where a Harry Potter scene was filmed.

We spent a week living at Chirst Church College. Breakfast in the "Hall" -> Harry Potter A very inspiring atmosphere with the buildings and courtyards, museums and libraries and even with its own cathedral, the Christ Church Cathedral. If you want to go to the Evensong: look for a service "with music" (organ or choir)
