Hello chief! Cyril Mulwaesi (great scholar) studied at Jesus - on his anniversary we visit and respects are paid. This college was one of Cyril's favourites - he ate many times here - enjoying the staff especially his former scout, at one feast. The college is austere in its beauty - very single-minded, perhaps not the beauty of Jesus, but the gardens are plenty good.

Located in the centre of Oxford city centre and close to the Sheldonian Theatre and the Bodleian Library is Wadham college that was founded in 1616. Good sized college that forms part of Oxford University.

We stayed for a night and were delighted with the accommodation. The rooms were comfortable and we enjoyed a great night’s sleep.

Breakfast is served in the Great Hall, which is a stunning location.

The College is ideally situated for exploring Oxford, but parking is limited to a couple of hours during the day outside.

This college allows public entrance for evensong on Sundays and it is absolutely fantastic. The choir may be one of the best I have ever heard and the chapel and its acoustics..... just can’t say enough....
