Take a peek behind the ancient walls of Christ Church

Oxford, Oxfordshire

Discover the fascinating history of Christ Church with an exploration of this majestic college, Great Tudor Hall and Cathedral.

Christ Church is an essential place to visit in Oxford; gaze upon the beautiful buildings and elegant quadrangles, and gain an insight into the history of this Oxford college and the life of a community dedicated to learning.

Two of its famous landmarks - Tom Tower by Sir Christopher Wren, and Oxford's Cathedral spire - contribute to the city's celebrated skyline and mark Christ Church as a unique dual foundation; one of Oxford University's largest colleges and the Cathedral Church for the Diocese of Oxford.

Stroll through the tranquil landscape of Christ Church Meadow where Longhorn cattle graze at the centre of a bustling city, and walk in the footsteps of academics, kings and queens and even a few wizards.
