Unlike some of the others All Souls is free to enter between 2 and 4. The chapel is unusual, dominated with black and an enormous wall of sculptures. It's also nice to see the towers up close and the beautiful sundial.

All Saints college was founded in 1438 by Henry VI. The college is located on the High Street and is truly majestic and is a must see if you are in Oxford city centre. Recommended. Fantastic architecture with dreamy towers and spires.

All Souls was built in the 15th century to commemorate those who died in the 100 years war. It's an architectural gem. Make sure you visit the chapel and the huge library--built later--which is amazingly beautiful. Also worth seeing is the Hall (if its open)....More
