My first ever visit to Oxford last Saturday. Came with my old university choir to perform choral work by our conductor (an alumni of Keble College himself) - pretty sizable college and the chapel inside was magnificent. Hard to believe it's Victorian but the vibrancy...More

I'm biased towards Keble as my son studied for his BA there. The painting of The Light of the World is stunning and hangs beautifully in the Sacristy of their beautiful chapel.

Large college founded in 1878, is a great looking building that is made from brick and features a chapel with Venetian wall mosaics.

The rooms are available during non term times. They are basic student rooms with good linens and well-fitted bathrooms. The highlight of the stay is breakfast in one of the most beautiful (and largest) dining halls in Oxford where you share tables with mostly visiting...More

We only had a quick look after visiting the Pitt Rivers Museum. We were impressed by the beautiful architecture. We also had a look inside the chappel and again you would not expect something like that in a college.

Always worth visiting Oxford and the splendid Chapel at Keble College. My son was so very happy during his time as a student there. He used to love giving Chapel Tours to various groups of visitors, who were always so appreciative of his knowledge and...More
