All we were able to do with our timeframe is drive around and stop for a few picture opportunities. Merely from what we saw, it was a gorgeous campus!

I would have liked to stay longer and get a tour around, but no time this trip.

I travelled down to Oxford on business and this was one of the many sites I was able to see on my days free. It is a credit to its name and the history behind it was amazing. The architecture is gorgeous!

We had a tour by an articulate Oxford student. It was fun/educational to hear him tell "insider" stories about each of the colleges. A beautiful walk for a beautiful day!

Did this as a day trip from London and didn't regret it. I'd plan on 1/2 day just to wander around. A guided tour is helpful.

It's graduation, and you'll see age-old traditions, including the "trashing" of the robes. Students must wear robes (like Harry Potter) to special occasions, especially exams. When the entire course is run, and you are finished with exams, your friends are supposed to trash your robe (and you) ending with a dump in the Thames. Then celebrate at The King's Arms, or The Turf or the quieter Crown on Cornmarket Street.
