Located in the centre of Oxford city centre and close to the Sheldonian Theatre and the Bodleian Library is Wadham college that was founded in 1616. Good sized college that forms part of Oxford University.

This college allows public entrance for evensong on Sundays and it is absolutely fantastic. The choir may be one of the best I have ever heard and the chapel and its acoustics..... just can’t say enough....
