Very pretty college with a lovely lake . Catch an undergrad play in the summer ( late May early June ) if you can. Ideal outdoor surroundings

“Superb Choral Tradition”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2012

Worcester College's quirky but lovely chapel conceals hidden gems of architecture but also plays host to fine choral music, beautifully sung which is completely free. In term time, 6:15 Choral Evensong on Monday, Tuesday and Sunday with one of its two top choirs of young people and Choral Eucharist at 6:00 on Thursday feature the English Choral Tradition at its best. A must-see/must-hear if you are staying nearby.

“Lovely parkland”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2012

Tucked away at the end of Beaumont Street, you enter the grounds and find that you've entered the countryside.

“beautiful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2012

A lovely college which is a little out of the main college area. The small quad is different as it is only enclosed on three sides. The College chapel is delightful. Do go and look at the animal carvings on the pews. There is an air of calm and dignity while here.
