As staying 1 minute walk away had to visit the oldest building in Oxford.Good view of the dreamy spires at the top of the tower. Small museum before the stairs has some interesting exhibits including a copy of the marriage certificate if William Morris.

This magnificent structure is apparently Oxford's oldest church, having been built in early 11th century. The church is built on the spot where the north gate of the wall that surrounded the city was sited.

The church has a Saxon tower making It one of or possibly the oldest building in Oxford which you can climb and have a lovely all encompassing view of historic Oxford. There is a font where Shakespeare would have stood while his godson was baptised. In addition to this it is a very spiritual place and the Vicar and his team organise: interesting biblical discussions , classical music on Mondays from 1 till 2 , very widely stocked fair trade shop and thoughtful services.

St Michael at the Northgate offers some great views of an old Oxford Tower worth a wander and a climb of less than 100 steps.

What a beautiful, calm peaceful place. We meandered in here on a blustery Saturday afternoon, and spent a good hour walking round, enjoying the quiet and the history.
