The college is beautiful and being a Harry Potter fan makes it even more enjoyable. On a nice weather, the broad walk is beautiful and pleasant. Would definitely recommend going to this if you’re in Oxford.

Staff could not be more accommodating to our visiting choir. The space was outstanding and the services moving.

Beautiful building. We never bought fast track tickets ahead of our trip which is unusual for us. However we never queued for long. We was there just after 9.30am. However the queue to get into the dining hall (Harry Potter filmed here) was slow due...More

I love the fact that they actually let you in where students live, eat and study. Of course none of the private area are available for visit. But the Great Hall and the staircase are a must visit in Oxford especially For Harry Potter fans....More

36 pound for family of 5 . guides were sullan and unfriendly. Hall closed for main part of afternoon and no reduction given. Therefore we only got to see cathedral for most cities is by donation only. Not impressed go see the natural history museum...More

Christ Church is one of the many highlights of this beautiful town. It is definitely a must visit. A lot of the Harry Potter scenes were shot in this beautiful castle. If you are a Harry Potter fan, Christ Church is not to be missed.

We dropped by Christ Church for a choral service in the cathedral (we visit enough cathedrals so why not drop by when something's on?). Entry was a breeze (free if you're attending a service) and visitors (of any denomination) are made to feel very welcome....More

Most of the colleges in Oxford share quite similar architecture and grounds, but Christ Church College is where Lewis Carroll wrote the famous Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass. We mainly walked the grounds, a must for all visitors to Oxford.

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).

As far as I know, only members of the college can eat in the hall. It is not open to visitors for meals; only for touring when it is not being used for member meals.

No, unless you want to have dinner in the great hall which is possible sometimes, rather than just walk around in it.
