University Church of St Mary the Virgin by DAVID ILIFF

University Church of St Mary the Virgin is the centre from which the University of Oxford grew and its parish consists almost exclusively of university and college buildings. St Mary’s possesses an eccentric baroque porch, designed by Nicholas Stone, facing High Street, and a spire which is claimed by some church historians to be one of the most beautiful in England. The 13th-century tower is open to the public for a fee and provides good views across the heart of the historic university city, especially Radcliffe Square, the Radcliffe Camera, Brasenose College, Oxford and All Souls College.
