Balliol College, established in 1263, is thought to be the oldest college in Oxford. The huge Gothic wooden doors between the inner and outer quadrangles bear scorch marks from when three Protestant clerics were burned at the stake here in the mid-16th century. Notable alumni include politician Boris Johnson and three British prime ministers.
