I'd been on a Oxford tour earlier in the day and the guide mentioned that you could attend eveningsong in a Wednesday at 6 without paying to enter. I'm so glad I got that tip. The singing was beautiful and I got to have a...More

The largest of Oxford colleges combined with the smallest cathedral in England. Magnificent architecture and grounds, including a fountain and picture gallery. Interesting buildings of Christ Church are the Chapter House, Tom Tower, Library, Collage Hall and the Cathedral. Across St Aldates you will see...More

Stay clear of a Sunday visit, you want to enjoy this gorgeous place with a bit of peace and quiet. It is better to avoid peak times because the queue can get insane.

This is a must see for anyone visiting Oxford. Incredible history and for Harry Potter fans, a real treat.

Enjoyed a beautiful service of Evensong this evening. The boy choir was stunning and the environment uplifting to the soul.

The cathedral is very impressive, but once inside no-one is available to answer any questions you may have. Overall a site not to miss if visiting Oxford.

Way overpriced. Although is a cool and historical place it's not worth it. You will finish your visit in 20 minutes and it's not that impressive. It used two cost 5£ before being a harry potter set but I would say was even to mutch....More

Absolutely beautiful school with a lovely garden and meadow. The magnificent dining hall inspired the one for Hogwart's in the Harry Potter films. Very beautiful and well preserved architecture and buildings. So many well known persons connected to this school and it was amazing to...More

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.
