Oxford Union information
Oxford’s legendary members’ society is famous for its feisty debates, heavyweight international speakers (as well as odder guests, such as Kermit the Frog) and Pre-Raphaelite murals. Although most of the building is off-limits to nonmembers, you can visit the library to see the murals, which were painted between 1857 and 1859 by Dante Gabriel Rossetti, William Morris and Edward Burne-Jones. The murals depict scenes from the Arthurian legends but are very difficult to see on bright days as they surround the windows.
