I came here to see where C S Lewis' rooms were and enjoyed it very much. There is a little café where you can lunch or get a snack, with an outside terrace where you can watch the punts on the river. Stroll along the walk and observe the deer at play. It's all so charming, I can see why... More

We were aim Oxford in May and decided to have a look round Magdalen College. It is just beautiful. The buildings are superb pieces of architecture, the chapel especially. The deer park is amazing we were so close to the deer, and we had a beautiful walk in the meadow. Of all the colleges in Oxford, do yourselves a favour... More

All you imagine an Oxford college to be - stunning buildings, sun- dappled cloisters, lovely gardens and a deer park as well. Well worth the fee ( don't remember how much but not prohibitive) and you can sit by the river that runs behind and watch the punters or just soak up the atmosphere.

This is indeed a beautiful college. The C.S. Lewis connection made it even more meaningful- walking along Addisons's Walk and thinking of how he and Tolkein walked along here discussing God, myth and religion was deeply moving. The chapel and dining hall are really impressive. The only disappointment was that the Oscar Wilde Room was not open.

Everything in this college is beyond normal. The cathedral, the gardens, the deer park, the walk path, the huge trees (200 years old plane tree in the main garden). Definitely worth it. You have to go there, it is much less crowded than Chris Church so really worth a visit.

Lovely place on a sunny day, grass for a picnic, circular walk round the water meadows and beautiful chapel and college. Reasonable too, family ticket was £14.
