So, we left off on our dreamy Oxford tour staring up, open-mouthed, at the grand entrance to the Ashmolean Museum. At this point, you could take a detour up the road to Walton Street and head into the charmingly named Jericho area for Branca’s great Italian lunch menu, but let’s assume you’ve had your fill of starch-based foods already today. So strap on your walking shoes and head back down The High until you reach Magdalen College. Whip out your wallet to pay – it’s worth all your spare change.
It’s perhaps most stunning in the spring and summer months, but the buildings are grand enough, even without decorative flora.
After an hour or so lounging in the grass and taking pictures of yourself promenading the grounds a la C.S., the appetite for something more…shall we say, hip, may have developed. Stay tuned! Something marvelous is just around the bend.
