Strolling round the Radcliffe, you can't help but find this Church. Well worth a visit - the craftsmanship of the Church is unbelievable.

The only reason for three stars is the lack of organisation. The stairs are obviously very narrow and at times, with people coming up and down, it was a little worrying. People were very polite, and attempted to squash themselves into the wall but if you don't fancy pressing yourself up against total strangers this isn't for you :-) Views at the top amazing though.

Here is a remarkable Church where many famous people have preached memorable sermons over the centuries.
Its elegant architecture makes this a place of confident prayer and worship.

An excellent view not to be missed. the second half of the climb is quite a narrow space and we had to squeeze through people once on top. Quite a challenge if you are claustrophobic but we lived through it and enjoyed it too..

This church has been built for 1000 years, yet it is still beautifully preserved. The architectural design is very gorgeous. It is located in the city center, so it wont be hard to find when you go to Oxford.
It is a must visit attraction when you are in Oxford
