It’s got an amazing spot in the city, just opposite the Radcliffe Camera, however this café is a spectacle of its own. Housed in St Mary’s Church, the café’s main dining area is set in Oxford University’s Old Congregation House, the city’s first central university building, which was built back in 1320. It’s a beautiful setting for afternoon tea, with its old brick walls and gorgeous vaulted ceiling, but on sunny days you also have the option to venture out into the gardens and enjoy your tea…
