“The most wonderful.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2012 via mobile

Possibly our favourite. Harry Potter fans where in heaven. The gardens are wonderful, and you really don't need a guide if you are happy to wander and just drink in The atmosphere.

“Stunning college with great gardens”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2012

A wander around New college (via the back exit or the front!) is absolutely amazing, especially the gardens! Enjoy this lovely college with the old city wall running through it for all the history that it represents!
