  • Magdalen is by far the nicest College to visit, in my opinion. It is a little off the beaten track. So it is not the crowded, Harry-Potter-obsessed experience one gets at Christ Church. On the...

  • We enjoyed our walk around the cloisters here but sadly the chapel was closed. The highlight was the outdoor walking around the meadow area and the fellows gardens. There is a small entry fee.

  • A nice, quiet respite from the surprisingly noisy and busy surrounding city, with some interesting medieval architecture and pristine grounds. There’s only maybe 20 minute’s worth of sightseeing in the college proper available to the public and the remaining meadows don’t offer much to see though.
  • I had one of the most memorable stays at Magdalen College. I walked the through the Addison's Walk and into the Fellow's Garden which is only accessible through Magdalen College. The Bat Willow Meadow is a bit of strange place but once you cross it, you come across everything you wanted. The park is spectacular in the summer with flowers and deers. It is was on my list of colleges to stay in when I was at attending courses. I may just stay here again.
