Oxford University is known for its beautiful, historic buildings.
Completed in 1509, Magdalen Tower, located at Magdalen College, is one of the most well preserved examples of masonry from England’s late medieval period. One of the towers main attractions is its unique gargoyles. Visitors and backpackers can have the chance to climb the tower. A trip up the tower (small fee required) reveals some spectacular panoramic views of central Oxford. The funny thing is that this old tower is the tallest building in Oxford and it is a tradition since the days of Henry VII that the college choir sings from the top of it at 6 a.m. on May Morning.
