Cornmarket Street, Oxford, OX1 3EY
St. Michael at the North Gate is the City Church of Oxford. The Saxon Tower is the oldest building in town, dating back to the 1040s. Visitors are welcome to climb to the top, where a stunning view of the 'dreaming spires' awaits them. As you climb there are many fascinating objects on display, including the cell door of Archbishop Cranmer. The Church itself is beautiful and boasts Oxford's oldest stained glass window. Come and learn how William Shakespeare, William Morris and King Charles I have all featured in its history. Services are still held regularly. All very welcome.
