    Just two weeks before we were in London and the Natural History Museum there, so expectations for this weren't high in comparison. While not to that very high standard I am pleased to say it was still a fantastic place to visit.

    The highlight for most is the dinosaur exhibit and this small selection did not disappoint, which goes for most of the displays here, a small selection but with plenty of information and very well maintained.

    It was great to see so many children in here taking an interest, an advert for museums being free to everyone, but that doesn't mean you can't make a nice donation to keep them that way.

    This should be very high on your list of places to see in Oxford without a doubt.

    Great history, lovely place as a turist to spend a couple of hours. The dinosours are worth the visit as well as other things

    We had great fun exploring the castle with our guide John who gave interesting facts and told plenty of stories. Great views from the tower which was a challenge to get up and down but glad we did. Although it was just the two of us this is definitely something we would do with children.

    As part of our walking tour we took in a huge amount of the university from Christ Church to the Sheldonian Theatre and the amazing looking Bodleian Library, it really is a beautiful city and with a tour guide so many different stories to be heard.

    Beautiful museum. Whether your interest lies in ancient Egypt, Feudal Japan, or Renaissance Art there is something for everyone.

    These most beautiful buildings!! And stunning grounds.
    Did the audio tour - the cathedral was shut. Therefore, it did not take as long , possibly should be cheaper as missing quite a chunk of the tour..

    Dining hall, amazing!!!

    Must visit when in Oxford!

    I was not expecting a green space like this in the middle of a bustling city. Peace and quiet (except for the bells) and Long horned cows with their babies!

    The tour was excellent. The service at the bar was wonderful too. The surroundings are beautiful. These are the best gin and tonic and vodka that I've ever tried. But the best thing of all is the fact that their drinks are made of their own local sustainable farming promoting biodiversity. Lo mejor de todo es que sus productos están hechos de agricultura sustentable que promueve la biodiversidad.

    Magdalen is by far the nicest College to visit, in my opinion. It is a little off the beaten track. So it is not the crowded, Harry-Potter-obsessed experience one gets at Christ Church.

    On the morning of my visit I seemed to be the only tourist. A very nice man at reception greeted me warmly and gave me a map. I wandered through the cloisters, the chapel ,the silent quads and the dining hall

    Magdalen is the College of Oscar Wilde and CS Lewis.

    The grounds of Magdalen make it special. There is a deer park where the deer graze quietly under the trees. Go through the gateway over the bridge into Addison Walk and do the full circuit by the water. Sit on a bench for a beautiful view of Magdalen Tower.

    A little way round Addison's Walk you will see a circular grey plaque on a wall with a wistful poem by CS Lewis on the passing of time, the inevitable cycle of the seasons, and our longing to escape the cruelty of age and decay.

    It is a beautiful, tranquil place, well worth a visit. There is a small fee to enter the College.

    My husband and I visited the church, it was very beautiful! The architecture of the building, the artworks inside the church, the stained glasses in the windows, all was done so detailed and coordinated. Amazing place!

    You have to have a tour (if not student/faculty/special pass) to be able to go inside but for any book or architectural buff you will want to make the effort!

    We booked a room here to stay and it is a wonderful college to wander around, so many beautiful spaces like the cloister and the garden to see. The rooms are simple, but even in the new building it was a really comfortable nights rest lovely porters who were so helpful, would recommend spending the night if you can!

    This botanic garden is a must see for all plants and gardening lovers. They have an outstanding variety of plants.
    It is also possible to rent punts (flat bottom boats) and explore the small river.

    One of the sights I have always wanted to visit so was pleased to have done so even though, understandably, you can only view it from the street. My photos show people everywhere because we were there on a graduation day but that just added to the atmosphere.
