GETTING THERE

Red Line

Brave the train journey if you have to.

But if you would like to get both to your desired destination and on the same day, I would suggest considering alternative modes of transport, such as the Tardis, Flu Powder. Teleportation might also do the trick. Or a broomstick.

After the scenic tour I took of half of England courtesy of national rail, it is not my form belief that anything outside of the M25 is terra incognita. And therefore needs to be approached with caution, GPS and a full driving licence. In a car.

WALK OR RIDE

Red Line Every corner in Oxford is a sight. And Oxford is a bike kind of town. So do some sightseeing, and if you aren't a fan of walking around, grab yourself some hot wheels and blend right in with the locals.  

THE BODLEIAN

Red Line Arguably Oxford's most famous sight after Christchurch. Check out this Oxford University library, both inside and out. Read the full post about it here.

RADCLIFFE CAMERA

Red LineNext check out the Radcliffe Camera (above) and the University Church of St Mary the Virgin (left and below).

HIGH TEA

Red Line Make a quick stop for a spot of afternoon teas at this gorgeous tea shop - The Grand Cafe. And you don't even have to wait till the afternoon. High tea is served all day. And, like everything else in Oxford that boasts a lot of history, this place was the first coffee house to ever open in England. Ever. Zomg.

SEE THE SIGHTS

Red Line Next, check out the colleges. Depending on the college you might not be able to just stroll in, so plan your visit and here is a link to everything you need to know about opening times and admissions. Featuring here are Magdalen College, All Souls College and the Oxford Bridge of Sighs (Hertford Bridge).

DINNER TIME

Red Line Grab some classic British yummy pub food at one of Oxford's many cute little pubs.

FIND A CELL FOR THE NIGHT

Red Line Turn in for the night at the Malmaison hotel - the former Oxford Castle and later HM Prison. Take a stroll throught the grounds and admire all the original features like the heavy iron doors and suspended metal walkways. Luckily both the food and the thread count have come a long way since prison days. Read the full write from my previous post on the Malmaison hotel here.
