We were allowed inside Corpus, into the courtyard, and to the gardens. We had the most unexpected and privileged experience.

Going around the different colleges and learning about their history, took me back in time. I could imagine how it was and how it still is. Such a privileged place to be.

It is always interesting to stroll through the fairly ancient streets of England's first real university town.

We loved the beautiful cloister courtyard gardens and soft limestone architecture and fabulous atmosphere where men and ladies have developed their career skills over the centuries

I love education. But even if you don't a tour of the 39 Colleges of Oxford University is wonderful. So beautiful and so much history . For one John & Charles Wesley attended and their busts are on display in the courtyard of one of the colleges, I think it was Jesus College.
