About the venue
Worcester College is situated in the heart of Oxford, with its many attractions and amenities, yet behind the College walls lie 26 acres of beautiful, tranquil gardens. Its buildings range from medieval cottages to a newest architectural project, the Nazrin Shah Building, due for completion in 2016. The college also has a library, chapel and dining hall created by some of Britain’s finest 18th and 19th Century architects.
The College Chapel was completed in 1791, but its interior was transformed into the riot of colour, humour and detail that it is today by William Burges in 1864. The paintings and woodwork include many jokes, whilst the animals at the ends of the pews are a mixture of the weird and wonderful, including a unicorn and blue whale.
