You have to pay via the Meadow Gate (walks round river meadows withrowers and good views back), but you can visit the Cathedral for free, and walk through Tom Quad by coming to the 6pm Evensong service each day.
A trip up the tower of St Mary's church in the High Street gives you a great view of the 'dreaming spires'

As with many of the colleges in Oxford, once you enter through the lodge gates, it is a bit like being in a tardis, there is so much to see, and lots of buildings and grounds to view.
This mammoth landscaped site is kept looking stunning throughout the year by a host of committed gardeners.

We were privileged to be given an exclusive view of Thomas Adolphus' Encyclopaedia by the Trinity archivist facilitated by the lovely John Allan.
Children even quiet down amongst the historical seats and walls; one can almost "feel" the history surrounding every site.

Helpful porter, super garden with the promised view which lived up to expectation, and the bonus of catching an organ practice in the beautiful chapel.
Fellows garden looked gorgeous in the Spring sunshine and has the best views of the Radcliffe Camera.

The current City Church of Oxford offers historic relics of interest and a small fee allows you to climb to the top of the oldest building in the city, built 1040, for panoramic views of Oxford.
The tower has an interesting history (starting from the 11th century) which is explained on the walls as you go up the stairs to the top, It is located in a central location, so the view from the top is very nice.

In April 2012 the Royal Mail produced a series of "A-Z Postage Stamps" bearing illustrations of Great Britain's most iconic landmarks and structures.
The view from our room was worth the price alone.

Bloody Mary's murdering of Protestants is well-documented but there are few sites that commemorate these atrocities (on both sides of the Catholic-Protestant divide).
