My girls and I popped over to Oxford for a few hours recently...to go to the Chinese supermarket and shop for a Chinese feast. We took some time out and went for a stroll to soak up the atmosphere. Love the cycling culture of Oxford and all the bikes lined up remind me of Shanghai.
Love the history and the buildings of Oxford. The Sheldonian Theatre, Oxford's first classical building and the first large building by Christopher Wren built 1664-1668.
Oxford's version of 'The Bridge of Sighs'...actually a bridge over New College lane linking two parts of Hertford college. It's graceful arch making it's own statement amongst the stunning buildings.
The Covered Markets, built in 1774 is home to many stalls. You can buy anything from fresh flowers, souvenirs, stop for a coffee or a meal, visit a greengrocer, butcher or fishmonger. A fabulous cake shop. Cool market with lots of variety and a great atmosphere!
