It really was a brilliant day trip location: it had many, many cute restaurants and amazing shopping streets.
Obviously the main reason we visited was to see the sights.
Even though I sort of knew that, it still took me by surprise. Since a lot of buildings are only accessible to students, I felt totally uncool.
I also felt like if only I could enter, I would totally find Hogwarts, the whole town felt like walking in a Harry Potter novel. Mary the Virgin for the best view over Oxford, and Christ Church University for actual Potter vibes. Since the Cotswolds were on our way to Bath, we decided to make a little detour and drive trough the area.
Aside from the Bath Cathedral and the Crescent, the highlight of the trip was definitely the Roman Baths.
I was worried it would be disappointing considering the high price, but they did a bloody great job at showing the history of the location, and actually bringing that to life trough an audio guide and visual exhibits. We stayed a little bit outside of Bath, halfway on the way to our next destination (Stonehenge) actually.
This is the moment you’ll be forced to drive trough central London, while not being used to the other side of the road yet.
We took a few wrong turns, but eventually ended up in Oxford in the early afternoon.
Stonehenge will only take you an 1,5hr-2hr to visit at most, so you can either go back to London and spend the rest of the day there (never a bad idea!
It turned out to be really quite pretty, but I’d definitely want to come back in summer time, when everything is green instead of grey and.. The tiny roads also cost me years of my life as I pressed my fingertips into my things, as Mister nearly ran over cyclists a few times.
