Definitely worth a visit and a wander through the meadows. Very picturesque college with meadows full of cattle, squirrels and other encounters.

On the edge of town overlooking the local fields, Christ Church is one of the original colleges and this age and prestige presents in the scale and form of the facade and surrounding grounds.

I was surprised by how beautiful the buildings were on our visit. Well worth the admission charge. The great hall, the vaulted ceilings and the cathedral itself were very impressive. Also the staff on hand to assist you were very welcoming and friendly.

There is nothing new to see here. If you have visited a university campus and a big church then no need to go there. Also the staff was very boring

Keep it a little less casual than pyjamas, but no need to go super smart. Just like a regular church service, really (normal clothes are fine).
