Oxford


Yesterday we had a nice change we had a day out and went to Oxford.
Oxford is about an hour's drive from where we live.
We went to the Natural History Museum.
We spent a couple of hours there.
























Then we went off to Christ Church.
Christ Church is a joint foundation of a college of the University of Oxford and the Cathedral of the Diocese of Oxford.













The great hall where scenes from Harry Potter were filmed.










We were very disappointed as the Cathedral was shut for a private ceremony.

Then it was off for lunch and several hours walking around the town.
A thoroughly enjoyable day, I love architecture, there was plenty to see in Oxford.

Sometimes its nice to have a break from the norm, we do enjoy are days out.

  3. Hello just found your blog today and found it very interesting. We seem to enjoy the same things plants, birds card making, looking for bargains, fairy lights and candles. Please carry on writing as you do. Not sure what to do about your Easter swop. Can you tell me more?
    Best wishes

    1. Thanks for following Pauline, for the Easter Swap, if you are interested you just need to comment on that post, I will choose one name from all the people interested and if you are drawn, we have to send each other gifts, can be anything you like, something old, new, handmade , but at least one thing must be spring/easter related or they all can be it's up to you, but do not spend more than £15 ,it doesn't have to be that much just depends on everyones budget. The draw takes place next weekend and then addresses can be exchanged and gifts sent out to arrive to each other in plenty of time for Easter xx

  8. Lovely photos. Oxford is about 18 miles away from me and sadly we try to avoid it as traffic and parking are not great. It is a beautiful place though. :)

  9. What a lovely day out. Its years since we went to Oxford and all I remember is that it was a very hot day and everywhere was extremely busy. When our eldest was a young boy he was fascinated by dinosaurs so we took him to the Natural History Museum in London, he's 40 this year and still talks about that day. I must admit it was a fantastic place.
