Although founded in 1427 Lincoln College is only Oxford's ninth oldest college. Its full title included a reference to Saint Mary which was unfortunate given two other colleges now New and Oriel respectively were originally known as St. Mary's. Lincoln is a better name as...More

It's one of the smallest colleges in Oxford, but the atmosphere is great, and the staff is friendly. Would definitely recommend checking out the dining hall and the bar if you could.

Beautiful old quads house student accommodation. The converted church at the end of Turl Street is the college library. Delightful!

Entry is free to Lincoln College, but there is not much to see. It is of interest if you are a fan of Rev John Wesley.

On gorgeous Turl Street very close to the covered market, Lincoln College is a hidden gem in the heart of Oxford. The chapel is very pretty, the quads have fantastically well-groomed lawns, and Lincoln has one of the best college bars at Oxford (Deep Hall)!...More

Always loved the front quad - the extraordinary atmosphere. Lincoln is a fairly obscure college - but has some oddly typical old boys. For example, Frobisher Montescue - the last Englishman to be completely eaten by a wolf. Or John Le Carre, the master spy...More
