What to See

Christ Church is an essential element in any visit to Oxford. Two of its famous landmarks, Tom Tower, by Christopher Wren, and Oxford’s Cathedral spire, define 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.

The following tour will provide those visiting the college with more information about its community and history. Beginning in the tranquil landscape of Christ Church Meadow, the tour will move through the college in the footsteps of great minds, royalty, poets, prime ministers, a little girl called Alice and even the odd wizard! Gaze upon the beautiful buildings, elegant quadrangles and vibrant stained glass windows, and gain an insight into the rich history of an Oxford college and cathedral.

The tour has been designed to accompany a visit to the college but if you should need more information feel free to approach the bowler-hatted Custodians or Cathedral Stewards with any queries that should arise.
