“Beautiful grounds”
Reviewed 26 August 2014

Cannot think of other colleges in Oxford or Cambridge that can boast a deer park within the grounds, but Magdalen is famous for this and it adds to the lustre of the beautiful grounds.

“My favourite Oxford college to visit”
Reviewed 25 August 2014

The history immerses you at Magdalen. The unique aspect here is the combination of an historic college with many many famous alumni; the incredible gardens and park behind (worth a visit in itself), and the Botanical Gardens opposite. Very friendly people on the gate and in the shop too.

“Great grounds and deer park”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

This is a nice college to visit. It is more expensive compared to others but the grounds are extensive. The chapel and courtyard are lovely, the buildings are great and you can also venture in to the gardend and the adjacent deer park. Well worth the visit.

“Magic stay within College walls”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

Just returned from Magdalen college, staying in the Grove building as part of a painting course. Had a large on-suite single room with dinner and breakfast. It was a wonderful opportunity to be surrounded by the lovely buildings and grounds for five days. It is a real haven in central Oxford. The flower borders are a real credit to the gardening staff and staff in the Porters Lodge were very helpful and efficient. Hope I get the opportunity to stay here again one day. Would recommend it for a visit.

Only down side. The bedrooms need a good clean!

“Beautiful old college”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

Lovely trip around, sadly missed out on some of the areas because of graduation ceremonies (must check diary!!) but just to walk in the deer park and roam the lower corridors made it all worth while.
