If you fit and active climb the tower for the most spectacular views across Oxford. It's a beautiful place to spend a while.

Located in the heart of the city, right in the High Street, beautiful indoors, really worth a quick (or not that quick) visit!

Yes, it's a circular tower with a lot of steps -- not for the very faint of heart -- but how beautiful a view it affords! The church also has wonderful acoustics: if you ever hear about a concert in this church as venue, attend.

The church offers a climb to the top of the tower with excellent views from the top. A good place to start the tour in Oxford. It closes at 17:00.

Located in the central of Oxford, you must have a stop here. You will admire the tower, the interior of the church and can light a candle. There are 127 steps to climb inside the 13th century tower for a panoramic view. St.Mary the Virgin (1280) was used for university business of all kinds, some to it too rowdy for a church, before the Sheldonian was built. Must visit when come to Oxford.
