Deer park in Magdalen colleage

We are planning to visit oxford in first half ofthe June and expect that most of the colleages will be close.

I wonder about magdalen colleage deer park - how to get there - via main gates of the college or it is the separate entrance.

Is it open in June?

Is it possible to see the deers or they are living far from the people paths?

Im afraid I cant answer the question about Magdalen college but hopefully someone will be able to.

In the meantime if you are specifically interested in seeing deer roaming freely in a park environment I can recommend Bushey Park ( Next to Hampton Court Palace ) and Richmond Park ( South West London ) Both are well worth a visit.

Magdalen College is usually open from 1pm and there is a charge to enter. You must enter via the porter's lodge which is the main entrance on High Street. Admission includes the cloisters,dining hall and chapel (if open) and the Deer Park.

It's difficult to predict where the deer will be. I don't recall ever seeing them leaning over the gates waiting to be 'petted', usually I find them lounging around in the distance under the branches of a tree.

Opening hours and visitor information here. http://www.magd.ox.ac.uk/college/visitors

If you happen to know a resident of Oxford then he/she can get you into the college free of charge during normal visiting hours as a guest.
