General enquiries:


Christ Church, established by Henry VIII in 1546, is a unique foundation of College and Cathedral. It is home to some 650 undergraduate and postgraduate students and over a hundred Senior Members. Christ Church occupies a 150-acre site in the heart of Oxford, including the Meadow, a tranquil area of pasture, preserved for centuries and bounded by the Rivers Isis and Cherwell.

For the Festival of Pilgrimage, we would have used the Cathedral (of course) and the Sir Michael Dummett Lecture Theatre.
