We had a few hours walking around Oxford University taking in the sites. We found Alice’s Shop first.
And then we walked through Christchurch Meadow. We then walked through the back streets of Oxford to Radcliffe Square.
I was taken in by the gardens that each college that we came across. They were all different to each other which was nice.
We came across the Bodleain Library and I got speaking to a recent Australian graduate. They told me that he had graduated that day. Still in his official gown. Doesn’t he look really smart !
We then came across the Balliol College.
And after looking at one of the many maps that you can see about, I realised that we had missed the Hertford Bridge – affectionately known as Oxford’s Bridge Of Sighs. It is found on the other side of the Bodleain Library.
I really enjoyed our few hours just walking around taking in the sites and the architecture. I think we picked the right time to visit too, as it’s the summer holidays, as it was so quiet !
