What are you looking for?

Come to visit our wonderful grounds, discover seven centuries of history and experience Worcester College for yourself.

Since summer 2023, we have been piloting a self-guided tour and free public admission to our gardens and grounds. Following a review of the pilot, the College has decided to pause free public admission and the following arrangements will be in place until further notice.

Please note that, for all visitors, group sizes are limited to six people and only assistance dogs are allowed on site. Sometimes we need to close at short notice for events or College business: please check before you travel.
