Queen's College hold Choral Evensong at 6:30 two or three times a week. The 30+ choristers make a beautiful sound and even if you are not religious, the peace, beauty of the chapel and music you experience, is well worth the visit. There was plenty of space when we visited - congregation of 15 and the service lasts approximately 35... More

I attended an organ recital in the beautiful chapel. Lovely to sit and listen to music and admire the beautiful stained glass windows, carved wood interior and ceiling painting

My daughter attended this college so I'm probably biased. Beautiful grounds with a wonderful little chapel set within the grounds .Also a fabulous dining room. I've also stayed here as a guest and can highly recommend the breakfast.

What a great experience! Check in is marvellous, your actual 'Porterhouse Blue' character (i know that was set in Cambridge) greets you and gives you all the info. The view from our room was worth the price alone. We overlooked the back quad which is one of those typical spaces you see in an episode of Morse, beautiful manicured grass... More

We did the City of Oxford walking tour and the guide was able to access Queen's College. It was fascinating to go behind the walls and see the inside of an institution that is hundreds of years old. We were very lucky to gain access to the college dining room, a real privilege.

The Queen's College (not Queen's) isits at the curve of the High Street in Oxford - its classical beauty reigning over the area. Unlike its gothic neighbours, Queen's is a stunning example of classical architecture. The bold lines of the front quad, flanked by an army of huge windows, and looking towards thew chapel and dining room, has a dignity... More

I was surprised at the size of the quad and buildings after visiting Lincoln College. I was here on Open Doors weekend and was able to visit the hall and chapel. The chapel was very atmospheric as they were rehearsing for a concert that was taking place that evening. Wasn't able to visit the library as you had to pre-book.

Not to be missed is the famous library at The Queen's College. This is the crowning glory of the college which is Oxford's finest example of 17th century classical architecture.

This is a beautiful college - well worth going on a tour if you can find one. The Chapel is magnificent and has one of the finest organs in Oxford. They have regular recitals on Wednesdays during term time which I try to get to if I'm visiting. There's an excellent college choir as well.
