Worcester College, Oxford
Worcester College is a wonderful venue with a mix of modern buildings and teaching spaces as well as Georgian and medieval architecture. Worcester College (1714) lies on the site of Gloucester College (1283) which was founded by the Benedictine Abbey of St Peter at Gloucester as a place of study for monks. The dissolution of the monasteries also led to the closure of Gloucester College, but buildings from this period remain inside the current College grounds. The buildings went through various owners and uses over the next few centuries before being re-founded as Worcester College. Worcester is close to the centre of Oxford today, but has extensive gardens and grounds that are worth taking in if the weather is favourable and which are as much of an attraction for visitors as the architecture.
