It was another sunny weekend and Team isango! went to Oxford for the day. Oxford university is world-famous, its alumni include Nobel Prize winners(e.g. Sir John Eccles) politicians (e.g PM David Cameron and former PM Tony Blair), well-known actors ( e.g. Hugh Grant and Rosamund Pike) authors (e.g Michael Palin) and the list goes on.
One of the largest colleges of the university is Christ Church College. The college’s big hall was used for filming some scenes of the Harry Potter franchise and you can visit the building Mon-Sat 9am- 5.30pm and Sun 2pm-5.30pm. Tickets in peak season £7.50, concessions £6.
The city with its historic buildings is a bustling town with plenty of shops, theatres and museums to keep tourists and residents entertained. Team isango! visited the Ashmolean museum of art and archaeology. Opening times are Tues – Sunday 10am – 6pm, Bank Holiday Monday 10am – 6pm, admission is free.
Oxford also has a lot of open spaces where you can lie on the grass and look at people punt on the Cherwell or the Thames.
We had fun and we hope you enjoy the pictures!
A visit to Oxford is an easy day out from London – if you are in a rush: take a day tour from London and see Windsor, Oxford and Stonehenge in one day.
