Excellent welcome from the Lodge Porter, who gave me a brief insight in to the College history, soon celebrating 500 years from founding. Well worth a visit, to see the Pelican sun dial.

Though one of the smallest colleges in Oxford it is no less lovely. Worth a visit to see the old (1581) pillar style Pelican Sundial. Also a scenic overlook to Merton Field.

One of the best colleges in Oxford, tucked in between Christ Church, Oriel and Merton just a minute from the High Street. Also one of the smallest colleges but there is a very friendly atmosphere at Corpus. An attractive garden and a rooftop terrace that...More

Tucked away, very cute. Small. If you come around June there is a tortoise fair - worth going to! Tortoise races and face paint etc. Check the date with the college!

Lovely pelican sundial, roof terrace with a great view. There is a great bit of cloisters before the garden. Go on a day with good weather. Small but beautiful!

Tiny and beautiful in delightful contrast to its big (flashy, even?) neighbour Christ Church. Check opening times as, like most colleges, it's not always possible just to walk in.

Beautiful buildings and immaculate lawns provide ample photo opportunities. Easy walking distance if you are in the central parts and outside you could hop on the red hop-on-hop-off tourist guide buses.

An older college, with a rich tradition, some beautiful buildings in the style of Oxford's inward looking quads. I pass through from time-to-time as a member of some of the societies of the university - but little changes.
