  New College Gardens, Oxford
by evaanna

New College Gardens are worth the walk along the Old Town Wall. In the middle of the gardens there is the Mound, which, unfortunately, you are not allowed to climb. But, as in most colleges, you can walk or even lie down on the lawn. There are also seats in the nooks of the wall, ideal places for study or for enamoured couples seeking privacy. On summer evenings, Shakespeare's plays are sometimes staged on the lawn.
