Bed and Breakfast


Outside of term time it is possible to book bed and breakfast accommodation at Christ Church. Off-site self-catering accommodation is also available in the summer months -- more information may be found here.

Christ Church is centrally located, in the beautiful City of Oxford, close to all amenities as well as to excellent transport links. Guests are accommodated in Christ Church’s comfortably modernized bedrooms. These are located in buildings of architectural and or historical interest either beside lawned quadrangles, overlooking gardens or the Meadow. The buildings reflect the differing centuries since the college’s foundation in 1546.

Rooms, for single or twin occupancy are located on ground, first, second and third floors. Many rooms have their own private shower and toilet; all have tea and coffee making facilities, telephone, free ethernet internet connection and a refrigerator. The college’s accommodation also includes standard single study bedrooms and our popular twin ‘sets’.

There are no lifts to the accommodation. So, please let us know if there are any accessibility needs when you make your booking and we will endeavour to accommodate your requirements. There is, however,  a lift to the Great Hall where breakfast is served. We will do our best to support other special access needs, bearing in mind the constraints of historic buildings.

A light and bright common room with comfy chairs is available to our guests.  Here you can relax and have a cup of coffee or tea, browse through the newspapers, read a book, watch TV in the adjacent room or check your email. Laundry facilities are available for self-service use.

A Full English Breakfast is provided each morning between 0800-0900hrs.  Breakfast is served in the unique setting of the Great Hall with its stunning hammer beam roof and wonderful oil paintings.

There is a delightful college bar called the Buttery where drinks may be purchased in the early evening.

There are lots of restaurants, bars and cafés nearby or it may be possible to book lunch and/or dinner in the Great Hall subject to availability.
