"The Tower Of Five Orders..." Oxford University Tip by coceng
Oxford University, Oxford: 7 reviews and 10 photos
Oxford was a Saxon town at a point where River Cherwell meets The Thames.
The first college was built in the 13th century & one of them was called 'university'.
Today, there are 39 colleges spreading over Oxford.
Right ! I wanted to go up The St. Mary Church for some scenic views over Oxford but I took more photos around the area first.
This photo is showing the oldest part of The Bodleian Library, The Old School Quadrangle.
The Tower of Five Orders is so names because it is ornamented with columns of each of the five orders of classical architecture - Doric, Tuscan, Ionic, Corinthian and Composite - in ascending order.
