One of the city of Oxford’s finest architectural masterpieces, the Sheldonian Theatre was designed by Sir Christopher Wren and built in the 1660s with funds donated by Gilbert Sheldon, who held the offices of Bishop of London, Archbishop of Canterbury and Chancellor of Oxford University. Its purpose was to provide an appropriate venue for the principal meetings and public ceremonies of the University, and this remains its purpose today, though it can also be hired for conferences and similar functions.
