Enjoyed walking around this college and the deer park. Would of missed the dining hall as the door wasn't open and the chapel if it wasn't for the really helpful guard on duty (22/02 @ 2pm) . Thank you . Wonderful copy of the last supper which is absolutely breath taking in the chapel.

As with many oxford colleges this had some beautiful buildings. The hall was beautiful. The chapel has a copy of Leonardo Da Vinci's Last Supper fresco.

We stayed in the guest rooms of the Magdalen for two nights. The accommodations were simple, newly renovated and perfect. Going to evensong and Sunday worship at Magdalen was amazing. The college choral services, are Anglican, bearing the imprint, as is the tradition at Magdalen, of the Oxford Movement or Catholic Revival of the nineteenth century. The quality of the... More

All the Oxford colleges are beautiful, but Magdalen College is quite something! The gardens in combination with the beautiful buildings are definitely worth paying a visit.

This college has everything - medieval and Baroque buildings, a deer park and river walk, and a chapel containing the most faithful contemporary copy of Leonardo's Last Supper (much better than the poorly preserved original in Milan), and a super carved altar reredos.

The title says everything. This is my favourite college in town. The garden with roe deer is beautiful!

Our first visit to Magdalen College and what an experience! The most beautiful building and grounds. The chapel is particularly spectacular as it has a number of black and white stained glassed windows. There were plenty of roe deer in the meadow. A magical place.
