Founded in 1314 by the Bishop of Exeter, Walter de Stapeldon, Exeter College is the fourth oldest College in the University of Oxford and boasts many celebrated past students. J.R.R. Tolkien was an undergraduate there, as were William Morris and Edward Burne Jones. Sir Roger Bannister, Alan Bennett, Philip Pullman and Martin Amis also studied there. Exeter served as a film location for parts of the 2007 film The Golden Compass, based on Pullman’s novel Northern Lights. The 2008 re-make of Brideshead Revisited features Exeter and the well-known, fictitious Inspector Morse collapsed in the front quad of the College.
Exeter College has a proud history of catering at a very high level for functions of varying sizes and the Dining Hall with its long, polished, wooden tables, dating back to 1618, provides an historic setting for banquets.
Book a place at the dinner for an additional fee of £50 during your registration.
