Atmospheric and spooky. As Oxford's oldest college, it has long been associated with the dark arts - other old boys include Daniel Dastarda (who spontaneously combusted sitting his finals) and Geoffrey de Blowstard (the last Englishman burnt at the stake, for mass poisoning of an entire church). Be sure to visit Shelley's memorial - he was drowned whilst surfing in Cornwall - having been sent down for impersonating the Master's daughter and parading around Radcliffe Quad in her nightdress.

Walking past the beautiful entrance to the college we saw a tour was about to start. £2 for a fascinating 30min tour by a geology post grad student.

This college has a lovely chapel with some wonderful stained glass windows and some original woodwork several hundred years old.

You can actually stay in the student accommodation during summer vacation. I did - for a week and loved retreating from the bustle of The High to the serene setting of green quads and honey coloured stone when I had had enough of exploring the city. Breakfast is included in the price of your room and eaten in the grand dining hall with lots of like minded souls.

Shelley's memorial, Percy the tortoise grazing in the quad if you are up early enough, George Gilbert Scott's library, and plenty of other gee whiz details.

Check out this accommodation and other college rooms at universityrooms.com. I was directed to speedybooker.com which is where I paid. However speedybooker wasn't up with the play when I wanted to extend my stay at late notice. There were rooms available but the booking website couldn't deal with last minute bookings and the porter in the lodge booked me my extra days. Great stuff. All the staff were helpful and friendly. Thanks guys.

Visiting University College is like going for a small adventure - while some parts are quite usual, there are amazing places definitely worth seeing.
