The architecture is world class and a stroll thru the Deer Park and along Addison's Way is heavenly. Our guide pointed to a lamp post that was a inspiration for C.S. Lewis' work

The grounds and buildings were beautiful - well-kept and majestic. The Tower stands as it did in the 16th century, the Cloisters were serene, and the Chapel is still in operation. The highlight for me was Addison's Walk. Imagine: both CS Lewis and JRR Tolkien...More

Colleges in Oxford all have their historical, impressive old buildings, but Magdalen's grounds are quite unique. A walk in the Deer Park and along Addison’s riverside is something every visitor to Oxford should try to make time for. Tranquil and beautiful.

Visited Magdalen College on Open Doors Day. It was interesting to see and imagine life here in Oxford as a Student. The Deer park was wonderful and so was the grounds, well worth a visit. The Chapel was just beautiful too.

As with a number of Oxford colleges Magdalen College is nearly invisible from the street. A door in a high wall leads you to the Porter's Lodge where an entrance fee is payable. You are then free to enter some of the College buildings and...More

This might be my favourite out of all the colleges here. Residents can visit for free and the beautiful gardens seem to go on forever. Even past the field with the deer there is a bridge that leads to another garden and at the end...More

You can go around the college, freely, without guide and with less people than other places, so you can have a better feeling of this old college and students life. The park is beautiful.
