A weekend in Oxford

Last weekend I was whisked away to Oxford as a special birthday treat from my boyfriend. We spent the weekend milling around the city and wandering in and out of the beautiful colleges. The boyfriend got serious brownie points for booking a surprise afternoon tea in a swanky hotel and for requesting a room upgrade. I'm still dreaming about the divine roll top bath! It was just the relaxation we needed to recharge our batteries - we always seem to go at 100mph most days. In fact we ended up in bed at 9.30pm after a cheeky Byron with a bottle of Kooperburg and American Pie on telly. Rock and roll indeed!


  1. Ocford is gorgeous, its a great place to just wonder around in, isnt it? I went one weekend and we found an amazing Moroccan tapas place, I would love to go back and eat in there again!

  2. Looks like a beautiful city! What a great escape!

  7. I recall going ot Oxford once with my grandparents in the summer holidays as they had train vouchers to use, and it was lovely, but I'd love to go again and really have a chance to explore.
