The highlight of the college is Addison’s walk, which is on the right upon entry. The chapel is worth visiting as well.. the courtyard is lovely and gives the impression of a literary masterpiece.

This must be a contender for the most beautiful college in Oxford with its 15th century quadrangle and high bell tower (1508) and set in a deer park with the river Cherwell flowing by. Easily found at the end of the high street in Oxford....More

Wonderful place to visit in Spring when the fritillaries are in flower in the meadow by Addison's walk

Even though there is an entrance fee this place is worth a visit. There is a huge garden where you would get to lie down and enjoy sunshine (if you are lucky to visit on the sunny day :)

The architecture is world class and a stroll thru the Deer Park and along Addison's Way is heavenly. Our guide pointed to a lamp post that was a inspiration for C.S. Lewis' work

The grounds and buildings were beautiful - well-kept and majestic. The Tower stands as it did in the 16th century, the Cloisters were serene, and the Chapel is still in operation. The highlight for me was Addison's Walk. Imagine: both CS Lewis and JRR Tolkien...More

For a few pounds you get a basic guide book and are allowed to wonder among the beautiful gardens, the grounds adjacent to the colleague and enter some of the buildings on your own. One of the few colleges that seems to welcome tourists. (Our...More

Colleges in Oxford all have their historical, impressive old buildings, but Magdalen's grounds are quite unique. A walk in the Deer Park and along Addison’s riverside is something every visitor to Oxford should try to make time for. Tranquil and beautiful.

Visited Magdalen College on Open Doors Day. It was interesting to see and imagine life here in Oxford as a Student. The Deer park was wonderful and so was the grounds, well worth a visit. The Chapel was just beautiful too.
