Gorgeous 13th-century cottages, and 1700 buildings, with a chapel designed by William Burgess. The grounds are fantastic, with unrivalled displays compared to other colleges.

This College is set on the western side of the city, and is well worth paying the fee to visit. The grounds are more extensive than with most colleges.

Free admission. The college chapel was particularly impressive, with its Nineteenth century redesigns. Lovely mosaics and stained glass. The overall ambience of the college grounds was good too, especially since the College is slightly off the beaten track, and less busy than others.

Worcester College permits visitors free of charge to explore their very beautiful gardens. My husband and I were envious of the students who have this tranquil oasis in which to pursue studies.

Well worth a visit just to see the main lawn - it is a work of art! The older parts of the college are quite beautiful and fascinating. The gardens are impressive

It was free to look around today between 2 and 4 (but I don't think groups were allowed). You need to ask the porter (on the right when you go in) for permission to visit. You are just allowed in the quad and garden, not...More

I am not sure why a number of other Oxford colleges charge admission whilst Worcester, which has the most beautiful grounds offers free entry. A fascinating blends of architectural styles make up the quadrangle, and the walk past the lack to the sports ground is...More
