Christ Church

Christ Church was established by Henry VIII in 1546 and is one of the largest colleges in the University of Oxford. Uniquely, it is also the Cathedral Church of the Diocese of Oxford.  Christ Church has a world-famous Cathedral choir, a renowned picture gallery and scholarly collections of books.  Many distinguished people have studied here including William Gladstone, WH Auden, John Wesley and Lewis Carroll.  The college occupies a 150-acre site in the heart of the city, which includes a tranquil meadow bordering the rivers Isis and Cherwell. The stunning buildings and lawned quadrangles date from the medieval period to the 20th century.

Meeting rooms are a variety of sizes and can adapt to different events.  Blue Boar Lecture Theatre and Lecture Rooms 1 and 2 have built in audio-visual facilities, and audio-visual equipment can be provided in other rooms.  The college has wifi internet access throughout.  A conference office can be provided for organisers.

Accommodation includes more than 125 single ensuite and 25 twin ensuite rooms.  All the bedrooms have working desks, tea and coffee-making facilities, telephone, free internet connection and a refrigerator. A free laundry room is also provided.  Meals are served in the magnificent Tudor hall and dietary requirements can be catered for if requested at the time of booking.  The college has a delightful Buttery Bar for drinks before meals and after dinner.
