Pay the 6 pounds to enter then got to the cafe and watch the boats. Well worth it and for a great college.

We were visiting Oxford University for Open Days and stopped into Magdalen College. Beautiful grounds, architecture and chapel. Worth the detour if you are nearby!

What a truly stunning college. The grounds are immaculate with beautiful plants and architecture. Lunch on the balcony overlooking the river is just idyllic.
