Well worth a visit. The great hall is stunning and its easy to see why it inspired the Harry Potter film makers. The hall along with the Cathedral are the main parts on the visitor tour. There is also a picture gallery for which there is an extra charge (£4).This is the only college we went into and would recommend... More

We visited 4 colleges today and Christ Church is so much bigger and worth a visit of course but lots of people and you are " herded " in and out of the main hall which was unpleasant. At £18 for family compared to £2 or free for the smaller colleges it is over priced. Go to Trinity and Balliol... More

Excellent tour to appreciate the atmosphere, tradition and history of an establishment dating back to the middle ages. Beautiful architecture with the highlights being the Great Hall and Church. Like everywhere in Oxford it seems, the staff are extremely helpful and friendly. Time and money well spent.

After visiting the bulk of Oxford city centre, I decided to visit the outskirts and came across Christ Church College simply by accident - loved the architecture and had plenty of opportunities for photos.

Accompanied a small group of Russian students, here as part of an International Summer School, who were drawn by the Harry Potter connection. They found it interesting but have to admit there wasn't really a lot to see from my perspective. Nice grounds and some great architecture, if that's your sort of thing though. We visited about 11am on a... More

Went to evensong service and was floored! Such a beautiful building and history yet filled presently with voices praising God! Go see this service if you ever get a chance!

£34 for the family. Great hall ok, everything else so so. Too many restrictions - bowler hatted staff telling us not to stand here or there need to lighten up a little. Eg I stood on a doorway step to get a better view- 'you can't stand there!'. I'm 48yrs old, not a teenage hooligan

Christ Church College is exceptional indeed and it's a must-see tourist attraction!It educated13 British Prime Ministers,more than any other college in Oxford.I do believe those figures speak for themselves.)))

£9 gets you access to the Great Hall, Oxford Cathedral (which also acts as the college's chapel), the cloisters and part of the quadrangle, which in my view is great value for money when taking into consideration what I have had to pay to get into some tourist attractions. The Great Hall's entrance foyer has a beautiful fan vaulted ceiling... More
