I would be thrilled to take you to Oxford – my old haunt and place of study.
As well as it being an integral part of my life for three years, it has a brilliant history as one of the oldest universities in the world.
A bit of the institution’s origins, a dash of Harry Potter, an insight into modern student life, and some insane traditions (including saving the universe every year): I’d love to give you the insider’s guide to Oxford.
Fancy having a wander around the largest and oldest continuously occupied castle in the world? Not too shabby, am I right?
And did I mention it’s home to about 1,000 years of history (and also often the Queen!)?
Windsor is very easy to get to from London, especially by train. A lovely morning or afternoon spent exploring the glorious State Apartments and the amazing St. George’s Chapel, where you’ll find the graves of 10 Kings of England and the historic Order of the Garter!
Just like Windsor, Hampton Court is a really quick and straightforward journey from London. And what an amazing palace it is! Hampton Court has so much character. A royal palace which looked after the Kings and Queens of England for over 200 years. We can visit the extraordinary Tudor kitchens (which used to produce over 800 meals a day!!), the Great Hall, the beautifully-painted King’s Staircase, and even the King’s toilet!
And if you have the time, there are even 60 acres of gardens to enjoy, the world’s largest grapevine, and a 300-year old maze!
Stratford-Upon-Avon is the home of Shakespeare (literally).
Visit where his wife, Anne Hathaway lived (just outside Stratford), where he was born and grew up, and walk the beautiful streets of this historic town, its heart almost exactly as Shakespeare would have recognised it in the sixteenth-century.
Shakespearean theatres, quaint pubs, even an eclectic collection of street lamps!
We may even have time to visit Shakespeare’s grave…
“Blessed be the man that spares these stones, And cursed be he that moves my bones.”
With an epic history stretching back to around 3000BC, Stonehenge has a real air of mystery surrounding it.
It’s an entire landscape littered with ancient remains and ancient legends to explore. Stonehenge has stood the test of time and you will have the opportunity to learn about the latest theories regarding its construction and use, and how, impressively, it continues to stay relevant in the modern age.
