England Oxford Garden Castle

16 September 2009

Oxford

Went to Oxford on the train today. Its about an hour west of London and you have to change trains at Reading. The trains were fast and perfectly on time again.
Oxford is a large university city with many old buildings, however they charge you to get into them all, and I wasnt about to pay to see the inside of a church.
It would seem its also a city for tourists who want to go shopping, but these days its just the same stores as you find in london, it is a bit weird seeing subway and mcdonalds inside buildings that look like castles.
