The first quad at Teddy Hall is an exquisite example of traditional Oxford college architecture. It is beautifully maintained and managed. On a sunny day, it's one of the most beautiful places in Oxford. The rest of the college is more modern and less interesting...More

St Edmunds Hall is easy to miss, just off the High Street on Queens Lane. It is steeped in history, some of which is visible. This includes the ancient church of St Peter in the East, now the college library, and not open to visitors....More

A real peach of a medieval hall in this college and is a contender for the oldest academic college in Britain. Founded in 1317 the college takes its name from St. Edmund, Archbishop of Canterbury who taught on this site in a hall in 1190....More

I nearly missed the inconspicuous entrance which is off Queen's Lane, off the High Street. I attended a meeting here and was charmed from the moment I walked through the gate and into the quad. The porters were very helpful and provided directions. We had...More

Certainly the finest of the Medieval Halls left in Oxford, if you do not worry about its actual college status it is probably the oldest college in Oxford in continuous teaching use. Founded in 1226 by St. Edmund of Abingdon (see emaciated statue in garden),...More

It was wonderful to visit this beautiful college where my husband had been an undergraduate years ago. It was established around the year 1236, before any other Oxford college was established and this pre-dates the university as a seat of learning. It is the only...More

Teddy Hall is how St. Edmund Hall is affectionately known in Oxford. It's something of a paradox being as old as if not older than the university itself, being established, in 1236, and yet not accorded college status until 1957. This is because it was...More
