The Liddell Building is built around a beautiful lawn and adjoins the University sports ground. In nice weather, it is possible to have picnics on the grounds (please note: no ball games are to be played).

All guests are welcome to visit Christ Church and enjoy the unique atmosphere of the College and Cathedral (walking maps are available from the Porters Lodge) at no charge. Find out more about Christ Church and its history here.


From Monday 2nd August until Wednesday 4th August, we have a unique opportunity for you to join us for an evening of Shakespeare in the beautiful location of Christ Church Cathedral Garden. Immerse yourself in the dream that our students have created with this magnificent production of ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’, complete with music, elaborate set design and costumes reminiscent of a golden era of ‘70s-fuelled hedonism. Book your ticket here.
