“A scholarly Experience”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

Oxford, as indeed an university town, where 38 colleges of the University are dotted and surrounded the town, as the university of Oxford and Oxford town are geographically similar. Highlights not to be missed- ChristChurch College, Camera Room, Bodleian Library, Magdalen College and Sheldonian Theatre

“Induction day at Oxford”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

I'm using the heading to cover all of the individual colleges as well or I would be on this site all day. Enough said.

“Take a guided tour”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

We took the guided tour that leaves from the blue front gates of Trinity College. Very informative. It doesn't go to Christ Church, though, make sure you see that on your own. Oxford is an easy town to walk around in, the college buildings are beautiful and historic.

“Visited as part of Oxford open day - beautiful buildings”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

We had a look around some of the Oxford University colleges as part of the Oxford open day. All the buildings are historic and beautiful, and looked especially magnificent in the sunshine! There were plenty of staff on hand to answer questions and they gave out interesting guide leaflets to read. We had a very enjoyable and interesting day.
