A Day in Oxford

I’ve lived in Oxford my whole life and so often fail to appreciate it.
I simply go to work and go home, using public transport and trying to avoid the hoards of students and tourists.
For the first time in ages I decided to spend my day off doing taking the time to visit some of my favourite spots.

Firstly I started the day with breakfast at Vault and Gardens, a beautiful cafe below University Church

Back onto the High Street for a glimpse of Logic Lane Bridge, everyone tends to head for the bridge of sighs, but I’m quite fond of this tiny covered bridge.

I haven’t been up Carfax Tower for years I often fail to to appreciate the city I live in but despite the chill the view is always a little bit special.

The Ashmolean Museum is always a draw.

Heading just out of the city centre for a quick hot drink at George and Davis, the city’s original ice cream café.

A brisk walk through Jericho and across Port Meadow, this walk takes a little over an hour.

Then on for a good pub lunch at The Trout at Godstow.

Mid afternoon and heading back to Jericho to watch a film at the Phoenix Picture House on Walton Street.

Finally after all that walking, a well deserved dinner at Gino’s Spaghetti House on Gloucester Green.
