Oxford - Part 1 (warning - lots of photos!!)

So, as you may have guessed, we've had a little trip to Oxford

We travelled down on Tuesday and after booking into our Hotel we had a little look around.

On Wednesday, armed with a map, we set off for the Ashmolean Museum (above).
I'm sure its a great day out most people but not for us. Its all a little bit serious, lots of reading, lots of glass cases, lots of quiet and no backpacks!!!

Out with the map, lets try somewhere else.

Everything about this Museum we loved, the building, the space, the happy noise, the labels saying 'Please Touch'. . . . . . 


Through a door at the back of the Museum lies the equally amazing Pitt Rivers Museum

Case after case of amazing things, something really to suit everyone's interests.

Where else are you going to hear your children discussing how to shrink a human head???

Back out into the rain and back to the map.

We spent the remainder of the day wandering the streets

Spotting lots of Oxfords most famous locations.

Even on a grey day it really is beautiful.

So that's about it for wet Wednesday, luckily the forecast for Thursday was sun, sun, sun.
