Reviewed 25 August 2014

We loved the beautiful cloister courtyard gardens and soft limestone architecture and fabulous atmosphere where men and ladies have developed their career skills over the centuries

“39 Colleges”
Reviewed 24 August 2014

I love education. But even if you don't a tour of the 39 Colleges of Oxford University is wonderful. So beautiful and so much history . For one John & Charles Wesley attended and their busts are on display in the courtyard of one of the colleges, I think it was Jesus College.

“A must see place if in Oxford”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

The University is rather a generic term in Oxford. What you have is a large number of colleges. Each with its own admission times and costs. Depending on your tastes, you can pick and choose and create own itinery. There are three or four which will be on most tourist lists such as Magdalen, Christ Church etc Most colleges will be open only half of the day and so check in advance if you can. Some are really costly to enter so again, pick carefully. Otherwise, really enjoyable to walk around Oxford and enjoying the architecture and the history.

“Grand, mysterious and intriguing”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

You will love everything about Oxford. We only allowed one day and it certainly wasn't enough. Need 2 days if time permits. It's no wonder they filmed Harry Potter here.
