It is a very awe inspiring place and it was good to be able to get inside and see the building, especially the cathedral.

Unfortunately, I haven't been inside but the park surrounding gives a great excuse to just stay outside and enjoy the weather. The tickets are quite pricey and prepare yourself for a loooong que. That's the main reason why we gave up and just wandered around.

Although it costs £7 for seniors to visit here, it's well worth the admission fee. Being able to walk through such hallowed grounds is an experience. Unfortunately when we visited the students and tutors were having brunch, so we were unable to visit the Great...More

We toured the area in the afternoon and really enjoyed the buildings and interiors. We talked to some of the students. Some of the kids from the states were quite thrilled to be going to school there. Pretty amazing place to go to school.

Our guide took us to this college. She shared the history behind this college. We took the most scenic images here.

Keep it a little less casual than pyjamas, but no need to go super smart. Just like a regular church service, really (normal clothes are fine).

As far as I know, only members of the college can eat in the hall. It is not open to visitors for meals; only for touring when it is not being used for member meals.

No, unless you want to have dinner in the great hall which is possible sometimes, rather than just walk around in it.
