Back again! Time for destination number two in the UK: Oxford!
Oxford is home to one of the most prestigious universities in the world, Oxford University, the oldest in the English speaking world, according to the knowledgeable Wikipedia
Oxford University is home to 38 colleges and 6 private halls. Some notable alumni are Margaret Thatcher, CS Lewis, JRR Tolkien, Oscar Wilde, TS Eliot, John Wesley, and Adam Smith, to name a few.
During my time in Oxford, I’d like to visit several of the colleges, particularly Magdalen, Pembroke, Merton, and Hertford, as well as spend some quality time in the Bodleian Library.
Of course, I can’t call myself an Inklings fan without dining at the Eagle and Child so that’s definitely going to have to happen.
I’d also love to take Addison’s Walk around Magdalen, a favourite walk of Lewis and Tolkien.
If possible, it would also be lovely to visit the homes of Lewis and Tolkien while I’m here, but I only have a day and a half! So we’ll see what can be accomplished in that time
Have you been to Oxford? Any stories, recommendations?
