Christ Church was a lovely place to visit, and in January that meant the grounds weren't packed with tourists. Sadly I could not see the great hall due to renovations, but what I saw was beautiful enough that I didn't mind. The staff in the gift shop, as well as the church, were all so lovely and helpful, and it... More

How can one visit Oxford and not take in Christ Church College? Impressive and awesome architecture. A true work of art. Inspiring. Well-maintained gardens that we enjoyed walking. Even if time only permits a quickie, do have this on your Oxford to-do list.

We went to Evensong on a Saturday which is awesome, especially in such a magnificient building. The college itself is great to walk around, especially as part of a guided tour.

The buildings are beautiful and almost unreal that it is a busy university with reminders visible in the form of signs reminding you that exams are in progress. Sadly, the hall was still being refurbished so closed to the... More

We felt it essential to visit one one of the iconic colleges with a large lawned quad and quite expected Morse and Lewis to appear!!! Unfortunately part of the tour was closed for viewing but the cathedral was amazing. We paid for the visit but returned at 6 pm for even song on a Saturday evening. I full choir of... More

the hall is currently closed for repair so lots of sobbing harry potter fans at the entrance the cathedral though relatively small still has some medieval glass as well as excellent burne-jones designs we much approved of the fact that during our visit with hordes of tourists one of the clergy went into the pulpit reminded everyone that this was...

Even by Oxford' s high standards Christ College and the associated cathedral are amazing but the great hall is not accessible at the moment so you might want to visit a different college until the restoration is completed.
