Visited Worcester college having just left the Ashmolean Museum a couple of hundred yards away. Entrance is free which is always a bonus. The grounds so typical of colleges in Oxford were immaculate. The grassed quad just inside the entrance overlooked by a row of...More

The grounds, by the canal, are some of the most beautiful of any Oxford College. They include a cricket pitch. The Chapel pews have extraordinary carvings of real and mythical animals. Just down Beaumont street from the Ashmolean Museum.

Worcester college was founded in 1714 and is part of the university of Oxford. Within the grounds of the college are its own sports grounds and a large garden area. There is also a must see chapel.

Loved this college founded in 1741. It has a beautiful garden, Chapel, and Hall. The Sainsbury building is interesting but the cottages were fabulous. Alum of note are Rupert Murdoch, US Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan, And Emma Watson.

Worcester College was my favorite of all the colleges visited during a week-long stay. The gardens and lake behind the quad are heavenly in any weather, so don't hesitate to visit even if it's misty or rainy.
