Owner description: Completed in 1737, this domed classical building forms the hub of architectural Oxford, and is considered one of England's earliest examples of a round library.

but you cannot go inside unless you are student. So while it is great to look at on the outside, and I hear the inside is even more beautiful with an incredible array of books, I didn't get to see them. And neither will you unless you go here. Unfortunately!

we had this as a side trip on the tour of the library and if you get the option please take it as the camera is only open to students and well worth the short/quiet visit

The Radcliffe Camera is part of the famous Bodleian Library of Oxford and it's unique shape and structure shows why it is an iconic part of the city. It has a beautiful grand architecture and looms out dominating the square it is in. Unfortuantely it is also a building in use and so you can only admire this building from the outside, hence my low rating. As a sight to see and show people though it is worth and i would recommend it. It is in the city centre, close to other famous sights such as the Bodleian Library; the Covered Market; the University's Church; Brasenose College; the Bridge of Sighs; and many more, so combine it with a general walk around this city.

This is a brilliant building that typifies Oxford. It is in the main University part of the city and is very popular with visitors. It is now part of the Bodleian library. This is probably the most photographed building in Oxford as it is stunning from the outside.
