This is one of the classic old colleges of Oxford and is a treasure of the Oxford Universities. Look out for the well kept gardens and lawns. It is just lovely place and stunning setting.

The buildings of Magdalen are even more beautiful than Christ Church, escpecially the court yard. A Little less crowded here too. A fine garden and you can stroll in the grounds over to an island in the river.

Popped in for a quick look around as I did with various other colleges but as it happened Magdalen offers a guided tour at 5pm daily in summer (£8). Great stroke of luck as it's a comprehensive & very interesting tour lasting 90 minutes or...More
