We were walking around during Open Days in June and stumbled on Nuffield College. The grounds were so beautiful, I had to take a few pics. Near the Castle, Nuffield is in a cool part of Oxford.

Founded in 1937 and with a large and tall block style tower, Nuffield is a more modern looking college that specialises in economics, politics and sociology. The public are allowed free access to the quad, which I must say is very peaceful and relaxing.

Incredible to step through the doors from the hustle & bustle of Oxford to the peace & tranquility of the college. Beautiful architecture & landscaping. Worth a visit if you get chance.
