The Radcliffe Camera, owned by Oxford University, was built from 1737 to 1749 to house the Radcliffe Science Library, and this beautiful round shape building is ideal for taking souvenir photos.
Wonderful architecture unfortunately access only for students
It was always on my favourite list, the Radcliffe Camera was a popular spot along the route of all day-tours in Oxford. Its cylindrical structure made it more pleasant to look at than the other oppressive architectures around it. 拉德克里夫圖書館。
Beautiful for either the interior or the exterior space. Make a RESERVATION at least 2 weeks ahead on the website or go to the ticket office at the earliest time for the ticket for the guided tour, which is the only way to visit inside.
Although it's not open to public, but the view and the story behind this library where mr Radcliffe himself didn't have the chance to see the building is just inspiring.
Oxford is fabulous for a day trip - there's something about the golden stone, the winding cobbled streets, punting and the architecture that is great to visit. Radcliffe Camera is iconic, though if anything the tourists wading through in large groups, all each asking you in turn to take their photo, that makes it a little claustrophobic dependent on what time you go. Worth a trip in the sun of the early morning.
Wonderful place to study and read. It is a bright, airy, beautiful architectural treasure with plenty of study space. Unfortunately only normally accessible to readers -- mostly students, faculty and researchers. Students and friends of the Bodleian can arrange access to the library to view, but I am not sure whether that includes the Rad Cam.
This is a little gem set in a beautiful square. It a fascinating academic historical background and good views of it can be found from the spire of St Mary's Church next to it. It is a shame that it isn't open to the public but it's function is educational and not as a tourist attraction. It regularly forms the back drop to scenes in Morse and Lewis on television.
