Reasons to go to Oxford: my impressions

If you are thinking of visiting Oxford please go check my former post for practical infomation and a day  itinerary.

These are some of the things I loved about Oxford:

- Feel like you have suddenly travelled in time to the middle ages when you are inside one of the wonderful colleges' cathedrals

- Imagine you are Harry Potter on his first arrival at Hogwarts when getting to the staircase with the marvelous vaulted ceiling at Christ Church.

-Find out more about the real Alice that inspired Lewis Carroll to write his well known works while watching the tree where the Cheshire Cat sat from inside the Cathedral at Christ Church

-Enjoy the ambience of Cornmarket street

-Get some official Oxford University souvenirs at the University of Oxford Shop

-Have tea in any of the wonderful cafes and relax for a while after hours visiting colleges

-Punt on the river Cherwell

-Find out who among your favorite writers, politicians, philosophers of all times studied in which Oxford College.

What would be yours?
