This is a stunning college and very accessible. Had coffee and cake in the dining room which was full of character. The college and grounds were amazing and it was the highlight of our trip to Oxford

Gorgeous 13th-century cottages, and 1700 buildings, with a chapel designed by William Burgess. The grounds are fantastic, with unrivalled displays compared to other colleges.

Worcester permits you to visit their gardens without fee. Beautiful property and enjoyed walk around the pond.

Not sure. Hotel prices in Oxford are expensive. Possible to stay in some of the colleges out of term time.
