As well as visiting Christchurch, St Johns and Exeter, we also went here. Although nothing like the scale of Christchuch it is the most gorgeous place with beautiful gardens and a lake and a lovely little chapel which we had to ourselves for a good while. This was my favourite college of the ones I visited and its a great place to escape to. Quite magical if you get a nice warm day like we had.

Love the secret garden. Very unexpected, but a lovely garden with an amazing old maple tree and a lily pad pond.

I know a lot of people who've been to Oxford and spent their time (and money) touring round Christ Church. Worcester's MUCH prettier. The gardens are gorgeous.

Excellent food, stunning surroundings, great company. Life cannot have enough experiences this good.
A walk in the gardens, the Sainsbury buildings, a view of the spiral stairs to the Murdoch library all contributed to an unforgettable evening.

It's a really nice college. The grounds are beautiful. It's really a romantic place, quite special because of its "lake". Definitely worth visiting !!
