I visited here yesterday for the second time as a birthday treat. The doors closed behind us as we were late arriving. As we entered we could hear the choir singing so we sat for a while to listen to them. It was delightful,we then continued walking around this unique building taking in the history before setting off for home....

Christchurch was first on the list of colleges to visit and boy it does not disappoint.You can sense the centuries of times gone by just eking out of every stone.The sheer scale of this college is truly huge.You will walk about feeling like a Liliputian dwarfed by the size of these buidings. The staircase and dining hall are obviously the... More

Christ Church especially and most Oxford University colleges is a special place. The buildings are majestic, worthy of a royal castle. The bricks, the doors (mostly rotten wood) are all worth a visit and more -- especally if you never made it to Oxford after school

Beautiful church set in the historic Tom's Quad at Christ Church College in Oxford - surrounded by the history of Cardinal Wolsey and Henry VII.

We attended the evensong service at Christ Church during our visit to Oxford. Very very special to hear ancient song among ancient stones. Beautiful!

Not being that big on appreciating buildings and artistic stonework, we really enjoyed this trip. Its £9 pounds for an adult and £22 for a family ticket - which isn't to bad as there is loads to see! It is set in beautiful scene which is strange as it is central in the city. Obviously very touristy but don't be... More

My family and I visited this college a few days ago. My daughter has wanted to study at Christ Church since she was 7 so she of course loved it. It has a beautiful courtyard and an amazing cathedral. The dining hall is so beautiful and this college is the one I recommend the most of all we've visited. Throughout... More

I came with my relatives during our visit to Oxford and decided to visit one college, which is one of the most famous in the city and it is a great place worth coming to when you have come free time available. The entrance is not too far from the main bus routes, including those on the open-top bus making... More

Pick any area of this city, and you will find yourself immersed in its history. There are bicycles everywhere, and Christ Church is accessible, as are all other sites.
