Situated across the Road from the Castle you cant miss this college as it has a huge tower standing proud above the surrounding buildings. For some time out, and piece walk into the gardens, although small, compared to other colleges, they are very well kept and truly peaceful.

Nuffield College is one of the newer colleges of Oxford, founded in 1937 and built on the former canal basin of the town. For us it was a journey down memory lane as my husband had been a lecturer here many years ago. The college is small and peaceful, with only post-graduate students who are largely studying the social sciences, The buildings are elegant and bring a sense of modernity to the history and heritage of the university. The main quad is absolutely lovely with its water feature and plantings. The landscaping as a whole is well worth seeing.

I popped in here on the way past, the public are allowed in the quadrangle it was a very pretty little garden and the building itself is quite nice. Worth popping in if you are passing.

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.

This is a modern college of interesting architectural design but htere's not a lot to see that can't be viewed from street level.
