    In case you're wondering what they capture - the first is looking west down Broad St, that's Exeter College on the left, and the second is looking across Worcester lake towards Nuffield College tower.

    I actually recognised the first, though I don't really know the names of roads, and I had an inkling about the second, for various reasons, though disappointment abounds about the absence of ducky wuckies

    Balliol is very mediocre architecturally. What criteria are you using here?

    Well when I went down to the Cambridge Open Day I had a sort of short list for colleges I'd like to apply to that included Emmanuel, St. John's, Trinity and Kings. After visiting (for open day and interview) I would probably rate them:

    1- Christ's (lovely garden, very central, incredibly pretty)
    2- Selwyn (right next to English Faculty, lovely looking)
    3- Emmanuel (Ducks...)
    4- Gonville and Caius (very grand, a bit big though)
    5- King's (ridiculously over the top but still quite alluring)

    It probably makes me a snob but I didn't even consider the new colleges, even though I really like a lot of 20th Century architecture.

    Never visited Oxford!

    Sounds reasonable enough to me. I went for a process of elimination when chooosing my college and the first thing I did was score off 'new' colleges. Daft really, I suppose :rolleyes:

    I'm suprised you thought caius was big......i've always thought of it as deceptively small. It is very spaced out all over the place: the land it occupies in the centre of town isnt that much really.

    And nothing to be ashamed of in eliminating the "new colleges"......everyone really wants to be in the central colleges of course!
