Me and my family just visited Christ Church College. We have a child who uses a stroller. The place is definitely beautiful and wholly represents college life in Oxford. However we were very disappointed due to accessibility issues. Using a stroller at Christ Church is a big hassle... no visible ramps and no assistance was offered. To make it worse,... More

Christ Church College is one of the most beautiful college campuses in the world. It is not always open but plan your visit to Oxford around seeing it. Make sure that you also visit the church. Do not miss it.

We enjoyed walking around the college and then the cathedral, and then went back for evensong which was also beautiful - certainly recommended (but perhaps not for young children)

This College is worth going to see for the architectural designs etc but particulary for the children as the huge staircase and dining hall was used in one of the Harry Potter films. I don't think the dining hall has changed for many years and gives an insight into how it was.

I have stayed here a couple of times for summer courses. CC is one of the best distilled versions of Oxford life there is. The meadows, the gardens, the Great Hall and the stone corridors all give you an authentic taste of Oxford life.

Excellent large and comfortable room with en suite bath at quite a reasonable rate. On week days guests have breakfast in the Great Hall at Christ Church, on weekends in a smaller room.
