Located on the high street in the heart of Oxford city is Queens college that was founded in 1341 and was named after Queen Philippa, the wife of King Edward the second. Great experience to take in the history of this college.

Evensong is held three times a week here and although on the main high street, as soon as you walk through the gates you are transported to a different place and time. The chapel is beautiful and compact with great acoustics and the quad area...More

This is such a beautiful college, and architecturally unique in Oxford. Highlights are the chapel and library, if you are able to visit them, but also the lovely gardens. JP recommends!

All Colleges in Oxford are beautiful, historic and interesting. They all have great courtyards, their own library and church and Dining/Ball Halls. For Harry Potter fans Queens college is a must The Staircase and Dining Hall is in pretty much all of the movies.
