Corpus Christi College
Founded in 1512 by Bishop Foxe of Winchester, this is one of the smallest Oxford colleges. Foxe was blind, so after the college had been built he was guided round the front quadrangle three times in order to trick him into thinking it was much bigger than it really was. In the middle of the attractive, paved front quadrangle is Turnbull's sundial (built in 1579-83), which is actually 27 sundials topped with the founder's emblem - a pelican representing the Body of Christ (Corpus Christi).
A fantastic and beautiful little college, what it lacks in size it makes up for in sheer charm. The Gardens were wonderful, in themselves worth a visit. And the hall, chapel and front quad were perfection in minature. Of all the oxford colleges to visit make sure you don't forget this little gem.
