Church of St Mary the Virgin

Visit the Church of St Mary the Virgin and experience the best view of Oxford

  • The University Church of St Mary the Virgin is a stunning church in its own right, but it also has the best view from its tower of the historic skyline of Oxford. The Radcliffe Camera, All Souls College and the Bodleian Library can be seen from the top of the tower, the reward for the 124 steps up to climb it.  
  • Travel there with Chiltern on one of our great value Advance Fares from just £5.40 one-way.
