Oxford, the city of dreaming spires, is an enchanting blend of history and academia.
My journey began at the Sheldonian Theatre, an architectural masterpiece by Sir Christopher Wren, offering a panoramic view of Oxford’s skyline.
Just a stone’s throw away, the New Bodleian Library stands, a hub for bibliophiles. Its adjacent café is a perfect spot for a mid-morning break, amidst the aroma of books and coffee.
A short walk led me to the University Church of St Mary the Virgin.
Here, the intricate beauty of the chair and the melodious organs create a serene ambiance, perfect for contemplation.
Strolling down Broad Street, the city’s history unfolded with every step. This street, lined with historic buildings, is a testament to Oxford’s rich past.
The highlight was Trinity College, renowned for its breathtaking gardens and iconic architecture.
Oxford is not just a city; it’s an experience, a journey through time, and a testament to the enduring power of knowledge and beauty.
Finally, I concluded my day at the Kings Arms Oxford, a pub dating back to 1607. It’s not just a pub, but a piece of history, where one can ponder over a pint the centuries of stories these walls could tell.
