We visited when the school was open to the public and really enjoyed viewing the buildings and especially the chapel. Some of the school was built in the 1690's with the newer portions being Victorian era. The quad was lovely, surrounded by flowers and other lovely fauna. Students sunning and studying in the quad...just a picture of college life in Oxford.

I loved the stained glass windows in the chapel. Then out to a surprisingly large garden that just goes on and on. Wonderful.

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

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.
