I loved this College and Cathedral. Only shame was that the Grand Hall was in use so we couldn't visit it, which I was looking forward to.

£9 each to go in but we thought it was worth it. The Hall was amazing but packed, very historic with amazing paintings. For Harry Potter fans a visit here is a must as several scenes were shot here on the staircase and the hall was the inspiration for Hogwarts Hall. The cathedral and cloisters were lovely, we had a...

We attended Eventide services at Christ Church Cathedral at 6:00 pm (most days) and enjoyed both the worship and the youthful choir.

I live in Oxford but have only recently visited this college with a tour guide. I really recommend paying a visit to this great college. If you can go with a guide you will benefit from it and see a lot of things that you may otherwise miss. I am a Harry Potter fan so I was delighted to see... More

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
