Oxford reminds me of a very charming and quaint little London. I love how traditional and English everything looks and the lush greenery all around the city. This was our first time in Oxford and the drive here was really easy. We used the park and ride which does make you wonder if its any cheaper as the parking was £2 and the bus was about £3 each to get in, but it definitely saves the hassle of having to try to find parking in a busy city.
We started off checking out the famous University grounds which were nice and quiet due to students being finished for the year or sitting exams. The Riverside Botanic Gardens were great to watch people punting, which looks like a lot of hard work! We also spent some time mooching around old streets and stopping off in cafes.
Probably the best meal out we’ve had yet
I seriously recommend going to eat in Bella Italia if your visiting Oxford. Me and Tom are both Vegetarians and even though finding places to eat is never a challenge as everywhere has veggie options now, this was such a tasty meal! (actually getting hungry again just thinking about it) I ordered the ‘Quattro Stagioni Legumi Pizza’ and Tom went for the ‘Portobello Mushroom Burger’ which we had half and half of and tasted so so good!
After the meal, the sun was starting to set so we took to the streets and spend some time wondering around before heading home.
