We happened to be in Oxford when Waterstones had an evening talk on WW1 and the Middle East. It was well attended and very interesting. It's worth checking to see what's on as it seems there is a varied programme of regular evening talks on different subjects.

Really worth the visit, if you don't have time for all oxford colleges, this one should definitely be on your selection (even if you are not a Harry Potter fan). On weekends there are usually huge queues.

This place has a long history, involving Kings, Academics and even Harry Potter. The Architecture is magnificent, the decoration impressive and the historic figures associated with the college is very interesting (get a guide). Having been to the Warner (Harry Potter) studio, it was great to see the locations used in the original film.

Need to pay a fee of 7 pounds for an adult at the side entrance as the tourist not allowed to enter via front entrance except for staff or students.Christchurch is also... More

Very beautiful old college. I highly recommend going on an open doors day, when also the little garden with the door through which the original Alice (from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll) came to the church garden. Take your time and enjoy the gardens, the cathedral, corridors, and dining hall. I would also recommend to see if there... More
