I'm biased towards Keble as my son studied for his BA there. The painting of The Light of the World is stunning and hangs beautifully in the Sacristy of their beautiful chapel.

Founded in 1870, this college has mostly brick buildings as opposed to the older colleges' stone buildings. The college was designed by Butterfield and the architecture was quite controversial at one time.
