New College, Oxford

I've just spent a week at New College, Oxford on a course in Higher Education Management, this is a view of New College from New Buildings where I had my room.
This is the entry to stair 4, my room was on the first floor.

I had to haul my suitcase up this stone, spiral staircase.

My room overlooked Holywell Street.

It was a bit spartan but large and there was a fantastic shower.

This is the cloister, they filmed a bit of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire here.

Stained glass inside the chapel at New College.

The WWI war memorial was very poignant, so many lives lost.

Inside the chapel, the light wasn't good for the photo, but it gives you an idea of what it was like.


  1. What lovely surroundings to spend the week in - hope the course was beneficial.

  2. Welcome back Janice! What an amazing place to stay...brilliant pics you have taken. I always fancied having a look around the colleges in Oxford. X

  6. Welcome back Janice. Looks a fab place to visit. Very historic. I was going to say looks a bit Hogwart-ish!! The Northern Lights trilogy (Golden Compass film) also starts in Oxford. Fab books. I would SO love to visit Oxford. Glad you had a good week. X
