Christ Church, College and Cathedral, University of Oxford
Christ Church is the largest of the 39 colleges that make up Oxford University. Founded by Cardinal Thomas Wolsey in 1525, and re-founded in 1546 to incorporate the Cathedral for the Diocese of Oxford, it is a unique institution combining a college and a cathedral.
John and Charles Wesley were undergraduates at the college, and were ordained in the cathedral.
Rev Charles Dodgson (aka Lewis Carroll) was a mathematics tutor here in the 19th century and wrote Alice in Wonderland about Alice Liddell, daughter of the then Dean. More recently, scenes from Harry Potter were filmed on the hall stairs.
Admission Adults £7.50, concessions £6.00, family ticket (1 adult 1 child) from £13. Free access (via main gate) to the cathedral for services. See www.chch.ox.ac.uk/visiting
