Beautiful old buildings bursting with history and college flair. I particularly enjoyed the gardens and meadows: peaceful, in perfect condition, a magnificent natural landscape complete with river and bridges within the college walls. The tower of the college is one of the landmarks of Oxford.

The description is wrong. The College was founded in 1458, not 1448.
