Oxford boasts of over 100 libraries, above-ground, underground and wherever else it is possible to have a library. Some of the historical buildings and lanes have played an important role in many storylines including Alice in Wonderland and The Lord of the Rings. And my favourite part is that Oxford also gave us Aslan and Tumnus of Narnia.
The Cotswolds are the quintessence of a picturesque countryside. It is synonymous to market villages, sheep grazing over rolling hills, thatched-roof cottages made of honey-coloured limestone and meadows as far as your eyes can see. It feels like you’re walking right through the settings of a romantic English novel from another era.
Living in London or just visiting, I wonder if anyone ever feels like a foreigner in the epitome of multicultural society.
1) On top of my list is Royal Observatory, Greenwich – The home of Greenwich Meridian Time (GMT)
2) London’s free museum galore is enough to make your whole trip
