Christchurch College – an inspiration for the Harry Potter film series. This was the main reason that I wanted to visit Oxford. And I never told my husband.

He reliased while we queuing to visit. We paid our entrance fee of £9 per person. You walk through a courtyard and reach a staircase.

And this was the one that was used in the Harry Potter films.

This staircase has been there since the 16th century. We then arrived at the Great Hall and you can see why this was the inspiration for the films.

After we left the Great Hall, we came across this door.  the oldest form of graffiti on record (the words were nailed into the door) and was a protest against the Prime Minister Sir Robert Peel who was in office 30 August 1841 – 29 June 1846.

And we came across the Great Quadrangle or known as the Tom Quad as this is where you find the Tom Tower.
