A very nice college and Cathedral. For the teens are a lot of place which they recognise from the Harry Potter movie. In the evening we went tot the choral evensong with a very nice choir. The evensong is free.

A true place of history and beauty. Great gadens and views across the fields. As seen in many TV series. Stroll around the walled gardens.

Set in beautiful gardens, this college is steeped in history. The banquet hall is a must to see, with all the portraits of the royalty and famous past students.

We really enjoyed our visit. Just wonderful to soak up the atmosphere and the history of this beautiful place. It was interesting to see the hall that the Harry Potter dining hall was based on.

As far as I know, only members of the college can eat in the hall. It is not open to visitors for meals; only for touring when it is not being used for member meals.
