Magdalen Magdalen College Review

Magdalen is my favourite of all the colleges. The college even has its own deer garden!! It's probably the second-most visited college by tourists, and just like Christ Church students, Magdalen has a reputation as a posh place.

Address: High Street

Directions: At the eastern end of High Street, just before Magdalen Bridge.

Bridge of Sighs - Oxford

Bridge of Sighs

The Bridge of Sighs Bridge of Sighs Review

The Bridge of Sighs is a famous Oxford landmark, often used as the backdrop for graduation/matriculation photographs. It links two parts of Hertford College, across New College Lane; however, access to the bridge itself is restricted to Hertford students and fellows. There is an equally pretty Bridge of Sighs in St. John's College, Cambridge, and both bridges are modelled on the original in Venice.

Turl Street

Home to three of the prettiest colleges in Oxford, and with the sort of shops you won't find on any High Street, Turl Street is a must-see for any visitor to Oxford.
