It's incredible. You would experience the charm of oxford university in every stone inside the Christ Church. An incredible dining hall, and you would simply love it if you like the dining hall in the Harry Potter movie.

A lot of people will recognise the entrance to the dinning hall of Christ Church College from the first Harry Potter film. It's easily the most visited college in Oxford. Anyone who is interested in the University, Harry Potter or Alice in Wonderland should check it out. Even if it is the most expensive college to visit in Oxford.

Went over as a family of 6 and waited almost 30 minutes to get in. When we finally got to the front of the queue, the price to enter was rather shocking. It's a lot of money for such a small location. Once you get in. You simply stand in a long queue that feeds through the entire place and... More

Excellent experience with much to see and enjoy plus many photo opportunities. However, for 9 pounds, the entrance is quite expensive and one would expect that at least everything was included. Alas it is not, with the Picture Gallery costing an additional 4 pounds to enter. Nevertheless, both the great hall (the inspiration for Hogwarts) and the cathedral are sights... More

This is another great Oxford building. The tour takes you through the Cathedral and through the main hall, which is adorned with portraits. Loads of people on the tour, so be prepared, but worth it. Note, the hall was closed at lunchtime until 2pm.

This college is well worth a visit if only to see the hall where Harry Potter films were filmed ( meal times at Hogwarts ) The buildings / cathedral / ceilings are stunning . There is an entry fee of £9 per adult or £8 for students and OAP s. Family ticket £22

We didn't get in as there was a one hour queue on a very hot day so we left. Loads of young Hogwart fans is the issue. The only delay is that they said they couldn't take the money any faster, which I didn't believe.

You can study at Christ Church for 1-6 weeks, with a different survey course each week during the summer. Accommodations are right inside the college. A rare opportunity for adults to once again engage in study for the mere curiosity of learning.

This is one of those 'know it's overpriced but told to see' attractions. £9 ticket gets you the privileged of 30mins+ in queue, then crowds throughout. It's really lovely, but I can't help but feel I enjoyed other colleges - which charged just £3-5 - more. Half the price and I'd double my rating.
