A Literary Tour of Oxford
This is my own virtual tour of Oxford and it includes over 20 bookshops and many of the most famous attractions in the city. I have included links to the places mentioned. Like any other detailed tour this will take some time to complete.
The Covered Market
The covered market is an historical Victorian shopping area in the centre of Oxford with delicious smells, assorted eateries and interesting shops.
Oxford University Parks
A rather self-indulgent nostalgic trip to the Parks.
Oxford University Museum of Natural History
Here be dinosaurs and the world famous dodo.
Christ Church College
Just one of Oxford's many colleges. Christ Church was home to Alice in Wonderland and more recently was 'Hogwarts', Harry Potter's school.
Christ Church Meadows
Another green space in Oxford
The Martyr's Memorial
A short history of the memorial.
Rosamund the Fair
Rosamund the Fair is a canal boat restaurant that cruises the waterways of Oxford. Rosamund the Fair is presently located in Banbury but hopefully will be back in Oxford soon. Highly recommended for a wonderful experience.
Excellent French food at budget prices.
The Magic Cafe
The Magic cafe is a vegetarian cafe located in Magdalen Road East Oxford right next to the Inner Book Shop.
These are reviews I have written about books with an Oxford connection.
