Rhodes House OxfordHome of the Rhodes Scholarships, Rhodes House is a magnificent building with a captivating history.
When Cecil Rhodes (1853-1902) died, the British diamond magnate and imperial statesman left most of his fortune to create the Rhodes Scholarships. The first Rhodes Scholars came to Oxford in 1903. To mark the 25th anniversary of the Scholarships in 1928, Rhodes’s Trustees built Rhodes House to serve as both a home for the Rhodes Trust and the Scholarships, and as a memorial to Rhodes himself.
Designed by Herbert Baker, Rhodes House reflects a number of influences: Cape Dutch farmhouse, English country mansion, and the arts and crafts movements of the 1900s.
The function rooms and Gardens can be hired on an exclusive basis for filming.
