Visiting Christ's

Visitors are welcome to explore the College and its grounds. However, as the College is an active place of learning and research, visitors are not able to enter any College buildings. The College is only open at certain times of the day. A guide to these is shown below.

Please note that these details are subject to change at any time; in particular, the College or the Fellows' garden are sometimes closed for functions and other events.

In addition, visitors are welcome to attend the Choral Evensong services held in the College Chapel - these occur during term, on Thursdays (6.45pm, lasting 30 minutes), and on Sundays (6pm, lasting an hour). See here for more details. 

The College is open all year round, except during the Christmas close down and during the Quiet Period, as follows:

College Grounds 09:00 - 16.00

7 Days a week

Fellows' Garden 09.00 - 16.00

Monday to Friday only

Old Library 14.00 - 16.00

Tuesdays and Thursdays only


Please note however that during the Quiet Period prior to and during the University examinations the College is closed to all visitors, including other members of the University, unless they are on College business. The exact dates of the Quiet Period vary from year to year, according to term dates but as a rough guide, the Quiet Period runs from early May to mid-June.
