After a lovely breakfast at our country inn we headed off into Oxford for a day of sightseeing. Oxford is an amazing place, the University Colleges are all beautiful old buildings steeped in history and intriguing stories. We decided to take a tour on the hop-on, hop-off buses and thoroughly enjoyed the many old buildings and grand settings. It probably surpassed Cambridge in size and grandeur but it's really hard to compare.
We found a great place for coffee and baguettes and enjoyed a good wander through the University area. Again we were competing with a multitude of bus tours, mainly Japanese and American. Jenny also found a great old pub, although we didn't have time for a drink, just a loo stop.
We travelled on later in the day to Bath, our last stop before heading back to London. The driving is easier now, especially with our friendly GPS, but I have seen enough trucks to last a lifetime. We are staying tonight at the University of Bath, an experience in itself. We dined in Bath at a quaint local pub, the Pulteney Arms. We were certainly thrown in with the locals but the pub meal was surprisingly good and the company was interesting.
