There is now a single charge for all visits regardless of whether the Hall or Cathedral are closed. We will advise you of any known closures at the time of receiving your booking enquiry to help you plan your visit. However, please note that as a working college and cathedral some closures may occur at short notice. 

How to Make a Group Booking 

  1. ENQUIRE - Complete our online booking enquiry form a minimum of 10 working days in advance of your requested visit date. If a group arrives at Christ Church and no booking has been made they will be refused entry.
  2. RESERVE - If we can accommodate your group, a reservation will be made for them in line with our terms and conditions. Account Customers will be sent an e-ticket from our booking system, to confirm the date, numbers and entry time/s that have been reserved. Non-account customers will be sent an email confirming the reservation and a payment link for their visit.
  3. CONFIRM - Payment must be received no later than 7 days in advance of your visit to confirm and secure your booking (online for non-account holders/ voucher for account customers). If payment is not received, the reservation will be cancelled.

Group Sizes

  • The maximum capacity per timeslot is 22 people. Tour operators/companies/agents/schools will be permitted to bring a maximum of 88 people a day (2 groups of 22 in the morning and 2 groups of 22 in the afternoon, subject to availability.)

  • In line with our safeguarding policy the following ratios must be followed when bringing visitors under 18 years old to Christ Church:

    • 4 - 8 years - one adult to six children
    • 9 - 12 years - one adult to eight children
    • 13 - 18 years - one adult to ten children
  • The supervising adult should remain with the children throughout the visit. Children should not be left alone at any time whilst in the Visitor Centre, College, Cathedral or Meadow.

Booking Alterations and Cancellations

You can amend or cancel your booking up to 7 days prior to your visit. After this time you will not be able to cancel your booking or reduce the number of tickets, even if fewer people are brought to Christ Church than have been booked. We will only be able to alter the date, time or numbers if we have the availability, and number alterations need to be within your permitted allowance. Cancellations and amendment requests should be made in writing, by emailing groups@chch.ox.ac.uk. We are not able to accept booking alterations over the phone. There is a £10 administration fee for each change made to your booking.

If you wish to increase the number of tickets, then please contact our Groups Co-Ordinator as soon as possible by emailing groups@chch.ox.ac.uk We will do our best to add additional tickets to your order, should our capacities allow. However, please be aware that we cannot guarantee that additional tickets will be available due to current capacity restrictions. Please be aware that we will not be able to add tickets onto your order upon arrival at Christ Church.
