A very high church
This is the main church of Oxford University and also a common place of worship for Oxford students. It is a Gothic building that can climb to the top of the bell tower and overlooks the Bodleian Library and All Souls College. It is the largest church in Oxford.
This is an area with dense attractions. In addition to St. Mary's Church, Shelton Theatre and Bodleian Library are also among them. These two can be regarded as landmarks of Oxford. St. Mary’s Church is the main church of Oxford University. It has a history of nearly a thousand years and its architecture is magnificent and gorgeous. There is a cafe on the first floor. Before the visit, we chose to have an afternoon tea here. Only when we are full can we have the strength to climb the clock tower, haha! Taking a picture of afternoon tea with the Bodleian Library as the background is also very feel! The church is actually very general, there is nothing special to see, but from her tower you can see the most photogenic study room of Radcliff Camera and All Souls College in Oxford. This is also a classic angle that has appeared in many movies. It is very spectacular. . (Picture 8-13) You still have to buy a ticket to climb the clock tower, 4 pounds. After boarding the clock tower, two classics will immediately appear before your eyes! Looking to the right, it is the majestic Petronas Twin Towers. That college is All Souls College. The college on the left is called Brasenose College, named after a bronze nose decoration in the College Hall.
It is our main purpose to reach the top of the University Church of the Virgin Mary. It took about half an hour for the queue to reach our turn. When we stepped up the spiral staircase that only allowed one person to pass, we finally realized why there were not many visitors, but it took so long. Ascend to the top floor, and you can have a panoramic view of Oxford.
It is the main church of Oxford University. It has a history of nearly a thousand years and its architecture is magnificent and gorgeous. This is a post-Gothic building, standing on the spire can enjoy the scenery of the entire Oxford. The opening hours are from 9:00 to 17:00, and in July and August it is open until 18:00. Tickets cost 3 pounds. The steps to the top are very narrow, one has to walk sideways, and there is only one way up and down. The scenery of the tower of the University of Virgin Mary is uniquely beautiful. From the top to the top, it is like walking through a time and space tunnel to ancient times. The whole city is full of Gothic spires. Then that church is the brightest and warmest church I have ever seen.
Climb the tower to get fabulous views in four directions. It really helps you appreciate the city. Well worth the £5
Beautiful church, located in central Oxford. Free to enter, subject to social distancing rules. Apparently extremely significant in Oxford’s history. Radcliffe Camera is close to the building.
If you want a good photo of Radcliffe Square then climb the tower. You will need sensible footwear. You get 15 mins access but plenty of time to take in the view
An amazing building, full of history and architecture, very photogenic , well worth a visit, if your in the area.
