Extraordinary to think that despite being founded in 1517 (by the then Bishop of Winchester, Richard Fox) Corpus Christi is still only the 12th oldest Oxford college. It's also one of the smallest both in terms of its size and undergraduate population of around 230...More

Excellent welcome from the Lodge Porter, who gave me a brief insight in to the College history, soon celebrating 500 years from founding. Well worth a visit, to see the Pelican sun dial.

Though one of the smallest colleges in Oxford it is no less lovely. Worth a visit to see the old (1581) pillar style Pelican Sundial. Also a scenic overlook to Merton Field.

Tucked away, very cute. Small. If you come around June there is a tortoise fair - worth going to! Tortoise races and face paint etc. Check the date with the college!

Lovely pelican sundial, roof terrace with a great view. There is a great bit of cloisters before the garden. Go on a day with good weather. Small but beautiful!

Corpus is a small college, but that doesn't mean that it's not worth seeing. I was the guest of a current student and was blown away by the library (but the general public won't be allowed in there). Though with the chapel right next to...More
