About The University Church of St Mary the Virgin

The spiritual heart of Oxford, the University Church of St Mary the Virgin is one of the most prominent religious landmarks in the city. A church has existed here since the 11th century, with the current structure dating back to the 13th century. It famously hosted the 1555 trial of the Oxford Martyrs.

Admire the Baroque facade overlooking Oxford’s High Street and the gargoyle-adorned spire, considered the most beautiful in England. Take note of the bullet holes in the south porch that are a legacy of Oliver Cromwell’s troops, then see the exquisite stained-glass windows inside.

Coincide your visit with a service to hear the Swiss-made Metzler Orgelbau organ. Climb the tower for impressive views across Oxford, including Radcliffe Square and All Souls College.

Getting there

The University Church of St Mary the Virgin is a 15-minute walk from Oxford railway station or can be accessed by numerous bus routes that stop nearby. London is 1.5 hours by train from Oxford, while Heathrow Airport is around an hour’s drive away.
