An inspiring afternoon at the Oxford Union

This afternoon a group of twenty students visited the Oxford Union. One of the oldest debating societies in the world, the Union was set up in 1823 and continues to host debates and talks from global leaders in every walk of life to this day. Our students were inspired by the illustrious history of this amazing place.

The Debating Chamber

The Union librarian guided our students round the debating chamber, library and courtyard and told us a little bit about the amazing people who have walked these halls, from Winston Churchill to Mother Teresa.

After our tour we paid a quick visit to Exeter College, enjoying the beautiful stained glass windows in the Chapel and iconic views from the College garden looking onto the Radcliffe Camera.
