ST ALDATES

Walk up the 16th century staircase and enter the Grand Hall. To your right is a portrait of Charles Dodgson, better known as Lewis Carroll author of Alice in Wonderland.

A statue of Mercury stands in an ornamental pond in Tom Quad. He was considered the cleverest of all the Olympian Gods. He holds a caduceus in his left hand.

Oxford

 

Jesus College was founded by Elizabeth I in 1571. It is situated right in the middle of the city, and stands on Turl Street, Cornmarket Street, Ship Street and Market Street. Wander down Turl Street and view it from Exeter College; the building has an understated beauty.
