I worked the annual Exeter Ball and found the place amazing. The architecture was great and the history is astounding. I was not disappointed that I worked the event nor that I visited this historic part of Oxford. Simply amazing.

This is a relatively small college, but it is v. beautiful inside. The porters are friendly and you can see most of what is interesting in about 10 minutes.

Stunning College with an incredible dining hall and beautiful green. Seems like it is straight out of Harry Potter!

For me this was probably the highlight of the tour - the place is steeped in history. It's like being on a film set - which of course it is, Morse's death scene was filmed on the green in the middle of the quad. The chapel is truely spectacular. I think if you visit Oxford and don't have a look... More

We visited this College on a walking tour of Oxford and it has the most beautiful chapel. It actually wasn't open to the pubic so sometimes it's better doing a tour and you do get to know the history this way?

You know the phrase, "when a door closes another opens"? Somehow I felt that the phrase is so true here as my guide takes us from one door through to the next. There is door at Exeter College that leads to the Fellow's Garden which hides an amazing view. I'm glad I followed a walking tour, otherwise I would have... More

My step daughter has just started here so we had a good look around as she is in college digs. Great place steeped in history as is most of Oxford mind you. So tempted to do the Morse heart attack scene on entering the quad but thought better of it (probably been done before) Great chapel and views over the... More

Essential for pre-raphaelite fans. In the chapel is a William Morris tapestry. Easy to reach from Broad Street, begin your college tour here.

How fortunate were we! We stayed for four nights at Exeter College (they rent out rooms between college terms, but you have to book well in advance). We were lucky enough to have an en-suite, with two small single rooms and a generous living area which had all that's needed for a cup of tea or coffee. The washbasins in... More
