Lincoln college was founded by the bishop of Lincoln in 1427 and is located in the heart of Oxford city. The library is inside an old church and is an experience to visit.

Lincoln College, approaching its 600th anniversary, is an architectural gem. The lawns alone are worthy of a special visit. New construction has been blended beautifully with medieval buildings. All of this aside from the ongoing academic strength of the Lincoln College community.

Small college. Only college whose hall was open to visit. Could look through etched glass doors into chapel. Free entry.

It's one of the smallest colleges in Oxford, but the atmosphere is great, and the staff is friendly. Would definitely recommend checking out the dining hall and the bar if you could.

Beautiful old quads house student accommodation. The converted church at the end of Turl Street is the college library. Delightful!

Entry is free to Lincoln College, but there is not much to see. It is of interest if you are a fan of Rev John Wesley.
