My Oxford

Happy Monday all! Don’t know if you’ve spotted this yet but I recently added a ‘My Oxford’ page to my blog. Oxford is a tiny, beautiful city & a huge draw due to it’s history, architecture & the university. (Oxford Brookes is here too but that’s not why the tourists come!

The famous Oxford skyline… covered market in the foreground, university buildings & The Radcliffe Camera in the background.

Did you know that Tolkein wrote The Lord of the Rings here? C.S. Lewis wrote The Chronicles of Narnia & of course, Lewis Carroll created Alice In Wonderland.

I actually met Elijah Wood once, in a pub called The Wheatsheaf, whilst he was here filming The Oxford Murders. He was very sweet & polite & small with HUGE eyes! He even signed an autograph for me to give to my step-dad, Simon.
Since I am luckily living in this beautiful city I thought I’d share various places of mine with you in case you ever decide to visit! So on My Oxford page you’ll find my favourite shops, eateries, hang-outs & places to visit. If you do drop by one day or have a favourite place you’ve been to here then leave me a comment & let me know what you thought!

Have a great week xox
