First to Keble College, the most controversial in Oxford at the time of its building, in a Neo-Gothic style with red, blue and white bricks. Learn all about St John’s College, another of Oxford's ancient and distinguished colleges. Noteworthy is also the Canterbury Quad and its 17th century Italian Renaissance style.
