Oxford University & Colleges, Oxford: 90 reviews and 208 photos
A masterwork of the 18th century architect Nicholas Hawksmoor - student of Christopher Wren and designer of some of London's most important baroque churches. The Clarendon Building owes its name to the First Earl of Clarendon, Edward Hyde, whose "History of the Great Rebellion" (aka the English Civil War) was a publishing bestseller for the Oxford University Press - the OUP used profits from the book to finance construction of a new headquarters here.
Directions: next to the Sheldonian Theatre on Broad Street
