“A little flooded at the moment”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

Magdalen Bridge strides from Oxford's High Street to The Plain and on to roads for to Headington, Cowley and Iffley. Looking north from the bridge usually provides a view across to the deer park, but at the moment it's a large lake that catches the eye on account of the record rainfall for December. To the south of the bridge, the sports fields are also flooded, with water close to encroaching the botanic gardens facing Magdalen College.

“great view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

Magdalen college is already good, and the park adds itself to this beauty. Just lay on the ground and experience the ambiance for a while.

“Green and freash”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012

A treasured green space in the busy town Magdalen's grounds are gorgeous and have the river running through them, too. Look out for punts in the summer months - maybe try punting for yourselves. You can hire one from under Magdalen Bridge. On 1st May at 6 a.m. choristers sing in the summer from the top of the college tower. The road over the bridge is packed with people and pubs and cafes are open for early breakfast. Morris Dancers, too!

“Another nice college in Oxford”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2012

I think each college in Oxford is different with it own flavour. This one is not an exception but exceptional. Try to take a look.
