Oxford has so much going on: history, education, science, tourism. As I wrote in my previous blog post about my visit here, I really had no plans. I just let the travel fates guide me. This is a collection of photos from my time in the city.
The Museum of the History of Science is so freaking awesome. I had major geek out moments here. For a former radio broadcaster and current mass communication professor, Guglielmo Marconi was an icon. He transmitted the first transatlantic radio signal and paved the way for radio broadcasting. I had no idea when I wandered in, but the MHS has some of that equipment!
Check out this other cool thing they have.
I ate lunch one day in Oxford’s Covered Market.
I wandered through the Meadow at Christ Church just long enough to enjoy the scenery.
The Oxford University Museum of Natural History lived up to the hype. If you’re traveling with kids, I think they’ll love it.
Coffee shops are hard enough to stay out of, but when Queen’s Lane Coffee House claims to be the oldest coffee house in Europe, that’s an experience I couldn’t pass up.
