I was here for the end of year leavers service (having sung in the chapel choir myself for 3 years nearly 40 years ago). The chapel has been spruced up since my time and an excellent new organ installed. It is rightly famous for the...More

Went to this college on the tour, as this is the last place that Morse died and where it has starred in other episode, it is very impressive.

I was there on my last day at Oxford. It's a formidable place to visit, specially in spring. I was in winter, but also in spring.

A beautiful College but even more impressive is the 17th Century Dinning Hall. A must see for anyone visiting.

Great architecture and a wonderful chapel make this college, albeit one of the smaller ones, a must see for your Oxford stay. It is the Oxford of Morse if you're a fan and we had an excellent visit on a sunny day.

Founded in 1314 by the Bishop of Exeter, Exetr college is forward thinking. It is one of the only Oxford Colleges to offer internships and have a career office. The Quads and chapel are lovely. William Morris and Richard Burton matriculated here.

Visited on a weekend trip to Oxford. Georgia studied her undergraduate degree here, so this place has special significance for her - but nonetheless it's a beautiful place to see. The chapel is gorgeous, as are the gardens out back. There's a lovely view of...More
