“My favorite college in Oxford”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

I love this place!
Make sure you go to the meadow.
Lots of Harry Potter is filed there so lots of opportunity for photos.
A great and stunning place.

“Worth the price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2014

we paid £5 for admission fee, because we are student, i think if normal price it could be £7.
The college is really beautiful. You got to see many sites where actually harry potter movie taken place, like the hallway as well as the dining hall.

The garden and the architectural is utterly amazing. It really worth the money we have to pay. Unfortunately the gallery room was closed on the day we visited.
There were a lot of language students coming from France, so it was a bit noisy.

“A must see on your itinerary”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014

Walk the meadow, see the dining hall (Harry Potter anyone?) and visit the grounds. It's one of the most grand colleges, and is a must of any visit to Ox.

“Check Out The Mad Hatter's Tea Party”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2014

6 times a year, Christ Church College hosts a Mad Hatter's Tea Party that seats 30 people at high table in the Hall. Do it if you can, the food's good, the tea plentiful, the Alice In Wonderland motif brilliant, and really, how else will you ever get to sit at high table & make like Dumbledore et al? Popular entertainment aside, the incredible architecture & lovely spires just exude age, scholarship, & yes, entitlement. Lovely.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2014

Took a large group of international students to Christ Church and they were all very happy! You are allowed to walk around nearly all of it and the volunteer staff are dressed up and very lovely! I am taking another group in May :)
