Visit Oxford University


Famous worldwide

Oxford is known across the globe for being the home of Oxford University. The University of Oxford Colleges has existed for over nine centuries and is the oldest university in the English-speaking world.

The University is made up of many Colleges

There are many colleges and places to visit at Oxford University including Christ Church College, New College, Magdalen College and St Hilda’s, St Edmunds Hall crypt, Brasenose gardens, Merton’s library, St John’s rockery and Queen’s medieval cottages.

Open to visitors

In the afternoons, most of the colleges are open to visitors and they are either free or available to look round at a small charge. Why not hire a limo for the day and travel there in style?!

Inspired Hogwarts Hall in the Harry Potter film

One of the most renowned colleges at Oxford University is Christ Church. Its Great Tudor Hall was said to have been the inspiration for the Hogwarts Hall in Harry Potter.

Ghostly experiences in the Library

Kings, Nobel Prize winners, British Prime Ministers and many famous writers have all studied in The Bodleian Library. With more than nine million books and printed documents, it is the UK’s largest university library.

Food at the University

To avoid appropriation in WWII by the Ministry of Food, it’s believed to have been said that the Deer at Magdalen’s College were reclassified as vegetables!

The professors and dons at Oxford University eat at the High Table. They are long dining hall tables that are raised 6 inches above the students. It must feel like sitting at the Top Table of a wedding every day!

See the most famous building in Oxford

The Radcliffe camera (camera meaning “room” in Latin) is at The Divinity School and is well worth a visit. The neo-classical style building was designed by James Gibbs and built in 1737-1749.
