Excellent welcome from the Lodge Porter, who gave me a brief insight in to the College history, soon celebrating 500 years from founding. Well worth a visit, to see the Pelican sun dial.

Though one of the smallest colleges in Oxford it is no less lovely. Worth a visit to see the old (1581) pillar style Pelican Sundial. Also a scenic overlook to Merton Field.

Tucked away, very cute. Small. If you come around June there is a tortoise fair - worth going to! Tortoise races and face paint etc. Check the date with the college!

Lovely pelican sundial, roof terrace with a great view. There is a great bit of cloisters before the garden. Go on a day with good weather. Small but beautiful!
