Day Trip, London: 34 reviews and 54 photos


<font color=996600><B>Oxford</font> 'that sweet city with her dreaming spires' according to 19th century poet Matthew Arnold is still a much sought-after place today. The town was established in 912, the university around 1160, and relations were tumultuous for some 600 years. This is where <B>King Harold</B> died, <B>Richard the Lionhearted</B> was born, <B>Henry V</B> was educated, and <B>I</B> ate my first steak-and-kidney pie. Here is a picture of <B>Radcliffe Camera</B> which is home to one of the greatest libraries, the <I>Bodlean</I>.
Great pubs, open-air markets, boats on the River Charwell, Botanical Gardens.
