Christchurch College – Harry Potter meets Alice...
Ranked #17 of 185 things to do in Oxford
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 June 2014

The building is amazing, the great hall very impressive, don't forget to look for the Alice window in the hall, the cathedral full of history, you don't have to be an academic to appreciate this marvellous building and grounds, we did not dislike a thing. A ticket gets you in and out all day so come and go as you please, the hall is used for students to dine in so may be closed for a coupe of hours.

My daughter and I visited Christ Church College in May. We paid to take the tour and we really enjoyed it. There were only 3 of us on the tour and the guide was friendly and very informative. This was definitely a highlight of our time in Oxford. We also enjoyed visiting the Church. The short tour there was interesting also.

The cathedral had a knowledgeable guide and plenty to see in the stained glass windows.
The hall was very busy (on a weekend) and we had to queue to get around it. There was no information provided or signs about any of the paintings around the hall which would have been useful.
Got in free with alumnus card but would have found it expensive for what it was.

My daughters and I went to Sunday Evensong in Christ Church Cathedral. What a joy to hear the beautiful voices of the choir. You will feel like you stepped back in time by 200 or so years as you sit in the wooden pews facing the center aisle (instead of facing the pulpit). Excellent acoustics and the boys choir wearing those white fancy collars just make it all seem like a movie set.

The college is beautiful but you don't get a lot for your money... If you are in Oxford you have to visit a College therefore I don't regret it... just thought it was a bit too expensive and busy!
