The University Church is one of the most famous parts of the Oxford skyline, and contains some of the oldest buildings in the entire University. It has a fascinating but occasionally unclear history.
The stunning spire that faces onto Radcliffe Square is considered to be one of the most beautiful in the world, and is accessible to visitors for a small fee. The view from the top of the tower is probably the best view of Oxford anywhere in the city. So, if you are looking for the best photograph in Oxford – this would be our recommendation!
The University Church was also the site of the 1555 trial of the Oxford Martyrs, the culmination of the English Reformation, in which the bishops Latimer, Ridley and Cranmer were tried for heresy. Hear more about their eventual fate on our Oxford Walking Tour.
