We didn't tour the school, but had a wonderful time seeing the garden. You have to go counter clock-wise around the quad to the tunnels through the building to enter the garden. It is massive and has a charming lake. they even were growing bananas....More

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

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