Being a long term lover of Morse and Lewis I have always wished to get to this famous college, also my children went to a school of the same name in a local town. On my visit - I was lucky that the students were...More

As with a number of Oxford colleges Magdalen College is nearly invisible from the street. A door in a high wall leads you to the Porter's Lodge where an entrance fee is payable. You are then free to enter some of the College buildings and...More

This might be my favourite out of all the colleges here. Residents can visit for free and the beautiful gardens seem to go on forever. Even past the field with the deer there is a bridge that leads to another garden and at the end...More

What a place! We were lucky enough to get in for free on an open day but it's just fantastic - rather like a beautiful tardis hidden behind stone walls. It's absolutely huge, including a massive and beautiful deer park, the famous tower and loads...More

C.S. Lewis was a tutor here for 29 years. It is, arguably, the most beautiful college in the Oxford University system. Those who cherish Lewis writings will enjoy seeing where he lived, where he strolled with JRR Tolkien, where he dined, and where he worshipped...More
