If possible go inside the college grounds ....they have a lovely area of parkland. Lovely college and situated actually on the river - Addison’s walk was lovely especially with the trees etc all in bud. One of my favourites

Be sure to walk Addison’s Walk. See the flowers and dear, listen to the bird’s song and take a break by the reflection pool.

My son was just accepted so it was an amazing sight to see. The Cloister and deer were incredible. To walk where CS Lewis had trod...

One of the prettiest schools in the Oxford area. The chapel was beautiful, the choir was practicing while we were there, making it a magical experience.

Well worth a visit for an insight of what Oxford Colleges are from the inside rather than seeing them on Morse or Endeavour on TV. A Sunday visit to the chapel is also worth while the singing is always of top quality

The highlight of the college is Addison’s walk, which is on the right upon entry. The chapel is worth visiting as well.. the courtyard is lovely and gives the impression of a literary masterpiece.

This must be a contender for the most beautiful college in Oxford with its 15th century quadrangle and high bell tower (1508) and set in a deer park with the river Cherwell flowing by. Easily found at the end of the high street in Oxford....More

Wonderful place to visit in Spring when the fritillaries are in flower in the meadow by Addison's walk

Even though there is an entrance fee this place is worth a visit. There is a huge garden where you would get to lie down and enjoy sunshine (if you are lucky to visit on the sunny day :)
