A Look Inside
Beyond the Baroque domes, gothic vaults and Palladian quadrangles there is so much more to see: enough to occupy the visitor for much longer than a mere tour allows - perhaps, in termtime at about 6pm, evensong in one of the colleges, a trip out of town to Blenheim Palace, birthplace of Winston Churchill, only six miles from Oxford, on sunny days a punt down the River Cherwell, or a look around the University’s world class museums, where objects range from Alice’s dodo through shrunken heads to the work of Titian and Barbara Hepworth. The possibilities are almost endless.
"Loved the insights she had into both historical and current affairs."
