Worcester College was founded in 1714.  Look up towards the main entrance. Notice the cyan clockface with its regal lemon lettering. A student once said, ' Worcester College stands out because of the beautiful lake in the back and the ducks that frequent the gardens.'



Worcester college was founded in 1714 by Sir Thomas Cookes. It was named after the county of Worcestershire. The architectural styles are diverse. In the first quad, an imposing neoclassical building faces a row of residential cottages called, 'The Cottages', said to be the oldest in Oxford.
