As we’re led down the main road we get a fascinating insight into this beautiful historic city. Being told incredible tales about famous visiting playwrights and their links to Oxford (and it’s pubs). Alongside stories relating to the various historic buildings which line our route. These of course include the world famous Bodleian Library where it’s particularly intriguing to hear of it’s royal links.
It’s also wonderful to be told of some of the more unnerving hauntings of Oxford as we’re led away from the business of the main roads and down the darker back streets. With teaching being recorded at Oxford University back to 1096 it’s no wonder there’s a plethora of phantoms lurking amidst the city who have clearly unnerved many a resident over the years…
But far more than just hauntings, it’s hugely enjoyable to hear about some of Oxford’s history and simply how the University would have operated in its infancy. We also particularly loved hearing about some of the University’s more famous alumni including C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien and it’s truly superb to get an insight into some of their previous residences and past meeting places.
