New College welcomes visitors to tour our buildings and gardens.  As part of admission, you may be able to visit the Cloisters, Chapel, Hall, Gardens and City Wall as part of a self-guided tour. Access to all of these areas cannot be guaranteed as the College goes about its daily functions, and we provide information on planned closures when possible.

Before you visit, you may wish to download a copy of the New College Visitors' Guide. You are asked to keep to the route indicated on the map, and large groups are encouraged to book in advance where possible.
