One of the best~kept secrets in the beautiful University City of Oxford - home since 1280 of the oldest higher education establishment in the English~speaking world - must be the availability of reasonably~priced, clean and comfortable Bed & Breakfast accommodation in the guest rooms of the various Colleges! Last Wednesday evening, having travelled to Oxford in order to watch the... More

Such a charming place, the atmosphere is so historic, the setting so beautiful and tranquil. Each time I have come here, regardless of the season, the beauty of these building and the grounds captivate me. Enjoy!

The grounds are very nice, it just a shame that a lot of the buildings can only be viewed from outside!

Although we've been to Magdalen several times, we took this opportunity to visit the chapel and take in the views from the Tower. A beautiful College and highly recommended

A colleague told me about Magdalen College, but I wasn't quite expecting to see as many deer as I did, all in the grounds of the college - in a city! It's one of my favourite colleges. Actually, it's probably my favourite because it also has waterways. On a good day, weather-wise, it's a great place to go for a... More

Have visited here many times. This has got to be THE place to visit in Oxford. The Cloister, the dining hall, the punts on the river and the walks round the Meadow are not to be missed.

I stayed here for a work trip a few weeks ago and it was really neat. Originally we were booked in the newly refurbished Annex which was clean and basic. I was bummed because its not actually inside the school, its off of Longwall street. The only advantage of staying there is its quicker to get to the room. I... More

We were staying in Christ Church college and kind of thought this might be similar so not sure it was worth the £4 a head entrance fees. It was well worth a look though as it’s got quite a few differences, the quad for one seemed far more attractive and the herbaceous borders of the gardens out the back are... More
