It's not cheap to do this tour but I felt it was value for money, especially having taken time to really look around the cathedral. The staff were incredibly friendly and took the time to point out extra items of interest. I was very impressed...More

Visited with family 25 quids for a tour with another hundred tourists in a strictly marked path... don't go there, don't sit here, don't touch this, don't walk there and all for what? A hall and a lawn 15 minutes total. Avoid, its a rip...More

We spent about an hour at Christ Church ~ it's really amazing. Luckily, one of friends is a member and we were able to go places that the regular visitors didn't have access too. When the Dinning Hall finally opened ~ it really was a...More

We managed to get a quick tour from friends studying at Oxford Uni, and it was a majestic college with a grand main quadrangle and well manicured gardens. Harry Potter fans may be interested in poking their heads into the stairwell and the great hall!

We went to see the different parts of Oxford University and where some parts of Harry Potter were shot. It was a very beautiful place to see and we enjoyed the visit very much.

A truly beautiful building. Lots to see both inside and out. Architecture amazing. One of the more ornate buildings in Oxford. Well worth a visit. History includes connections to Henry VIII and Lewis Carroll.

You feel like you are stepping back in time here. Check to see if the choir is offering a concert. We saw the Christ Church Boys Choir and it was wonderful. These concerts are free to the public.

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.
