Visiting College (including Car Parking)
The following information only applies when the College is able to open to visitors, based on government guidelines. Please refer to this webpage to find out the latest.

The College is open to Magdalen members and a small number of guests at any reasonable time and without a visitors’ charge, but please note the College is completely closed around Christmas and New Year’s Eve. Please identify yourself to the Porters or visitors’ staff in the Lodge. The Grounds and Chapel are open 10.00am-3.30pm on New Year’s Day.

The Old Kitchen Bar is normally open for food Monday-Saturday from 10.00am-5.30pm in term time and 10.00am-6.30pm seven days a week in the Long Vacation. During term time it is also open 6.00pm-11.30pm, bar only.

College is generally unable to provide car parking owing to pressure on space. We recommend travelling by public transport or using the Park and Ride facilities offered by Oxford City Council (with 24 hour security). More information is available on the Park and Ride website. Please contact the Lodge Manager (E: T: +44 (0) 1865 276003) to enquire about Blue Badge parking. Those who are guests of a Member of the College should make arrangements through their host.
