The last time we attended a carol service. This time we visited in the day and had a sumptuous afternoon tea. Lovely service. Tasty food, every single piece in the set. We could walk to the Fellows Gardens and thereafter up some steps to get a fabulous view of the Radcliffe Observatory and surrounding colleges.
The Porter at reception was ever so friendly. Catering staff were professional and pleasant.

Delightful afternoon spent in the beautiful dining hall at Exeter College. Wonderful food and service followed by visit to the gardens and chapel. Well worth a visit to sample what wonderful places Oxford Colleges are.

In the centre of the city tucked in between shops you can easily miss Exeter college, its more great architecture worth a view.

Access to this college is free from 2-5 pm. As a Morse fan It was amazing. Sat listening to a choir for an hour then wandered into the gardens which were beautiful with glorious high walled views and a small fish pond at the bottom of the garden. Escaped from the hustle bustle of Oxford into tranquility for an hour and a half. Highly recommend it.

We were granted access to the college grounds as part of a walking tour and I'm so glad for it. The grounds are gorgeous, as is the chapel, and the Fellows Garden was really quite lovely despite its simplicity. Lovely views of the Radcliffe Camera and some of the neighboring colleges and churches.

I came for the new afternoon teas in the delightful dining hall of Exeter. Couldn't rate it highly enough, The staff were lovely, the scones were delightful, warm and fresh and there was a bottomless amount of tea. Great value for money, especially given the surroundings, My friend and I were very impressed.

You know the phrase, "when a door closes another opens"? Somehow I felt that the phrase is so true here as my guide takes us from one door through to the next. There is door at Exeter College that leads to the Fellow's Garden which hides an amazing view. I'm glad I followed a walking tour, otherwise I would have missed this amazing view that hidden out of sight. This vantage point is within Exeter College's Fellow's Garden.

On a walking tour of Oxford we stopped in the chapel of Exeter college. Beautiful chapel with a great history. The memorial to Exeter college men lost in WW1 is the same size of some as some towns and villages. Interesting to realise how many men from Oxford lost their lives due to being first over the top.

Beautiful architecture marred poor by state of Fellows garden. No colour left, dead plants that hadn't been weeded or tidied , empty plastic cups in the borders. Plastic bottle rolling around the pews in the Chapel. Despite being advertised as "Come and see Anthony Gormley statue" the closest you could get was by looking up from street level which I can do any day of the week.
