Oxford University is famous the world over and is one of the main attractions for those visiting Oxford. One thing to understand is that there is not one central campus to look around, the University is split into a number of colleges that are spread across the city (see our Oxford University College Map). Another important thing to be aware of is that the colleges are not open to the public all the time and each college has different opening hours so if you want to see a particular college or building it is advisable to check in advance whether it will be open. There are also charges for each college.
One of the most popular colleges with visitors is Christ Church (please see our video above of the outside and adjacent Christchurch meadows!). It has a spectacular dinning hall which was used in the Harry Potter films and also spectacular grounds and buildings. What ever you decide to see why not use the information on this site to research your day in advance?
