Worcester College permits visitors free of charge to explore their very beautiful gardens. My husband and I were envious of the students who have this tranquil oasis in which to pursue studies.

This college is free to visit and a pleasant place to wander in its extensive grounds. The college was founded in 1714 but there are buildings from the 16th century from it's predecessor Gloucester College. The small chapel is delightful with a marble mosaic floor...More

Well worth a visit just to see the main lawn - it is a work of art! The older parts of the college are quite beautiful and fascinating. The gardens are impressive

It was free to look around today between 2 and 4 (but I don't think groups were allowed). You need to ask the porter (on the right when you go in) for permission to visit. You are just allowed in the quad and garden, not...More

Visited Worcester college having just left the Ashmolean Museum a couple of hundred yards away. Entrance is free which is always a bonus. The grounds so typical of colleges in Oxford were immaculate. The grassed quad just inside the entrance overlooked by a row of...More

The grounds, by the canal, are some of the most beautiful of any Oxford College. They include a cricket pitch. The Chapel pews have extraordinary carvings of real and mythical animals. Just down Beaumont street from the Ashmolean Museum.
