The Divinity School at the Bodleian Library

Located in the center of Oxford, you can find the Divinity School at the Bodleian Library. Built in 1488 for the teaching of theology, with the elaborately vaulted ceiling and the 455 carved bosses, it is a masterpiece of English Gothic architecture.

Look closely and you can find it occasionally in television shows and movies, including three Harry Potter movies.
