  • The Dreaming Spires

    It was Matthew Arnold who coined the expression ‘dreaming spires’, but here’s the most beautiful of them, on top of the University Church of St Mary the Virgin.

  • The Radcliffe Camera

    In my opinion the most majestic of all the neo-classical buildings in Oxford, designed by James Gibbs, built 1737-49.
  • Bridge of Sighs

    A fantastic hybrid of two bridges in Venice, the Rialto and the Ponte dei Sospiri, designed by Thomas ‘Oxford’ Jackson, open for use 1914
  • The Eagle and Child

    Tuesday morning haunt of ‘The Inklings’.
  • Christ Church

    ‘Founded nearly five hundred years ago, [as] part of Renaissance movement to improve education and train young men for an active life in the church or the state.’ https://www.chch.ox.ac.uk/plan-your-visit/brief-history
  • Schools

    In the medieval European university the seven liberal arts were grammar, rhetoric, and logic (the trivium) and geometry, arithmetic, music, and astronomy (the quadrivium).
  • Ed Clarke - poet and tour guide

    I am standing in Liddon Quad of Keble College, designed by William Butterfield, built 1868-1882. https://www.keble.ox.ac.uk
  • The Museum of Natural History

    Another Neogothic building, much more to John Ruskin’s tastes, designed by Benjamin Woodward, built 1855-60. https://www.oumnh.ox.ac.uk
  • St Georges Tower

    The rather forbidding St George’s Tower of Oxford Castle, built in the late eleventh century.

  • Martyrs Memorial

    The Martyrs’ Memorial, erected in 1843 to commemorate the sixteenth-century prelates who were burned nearby.

    Lady Margaret Hall, founded in 1879 to allow nine women to receive an Oxford education.
