Oxford - A Picturesque Town

Oxford is a famous university town about 2 hours by train away from London. Even if you have never heard about the famous university, you'd have heard of Oxford English Dictionary.

A few colleagues and I did a day trip to Oxford on a Saturday. We opted for the easy way out - we took a hop-on-hop-off bus around town and got off at a few stops to explore the beautiful English town. The weather was great that day so the whole town was swamped with tourists.

I found Oxford, with its multiple campuses - big and small, a very pretty and photogenic town.

Christchurch - apparently the dining hall here is the inspiration for the dining hall in 
Harry Potter's Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry

The beautiful manicured lawn of Queen's College

My favourite shop in Oxford - Alice's shop!

Neat looking streets! 

It was a beautiful day for the great outdoors!
