We were excited to see the tree used in the Harry Potter movie and walk where C.S. Lewis walked. The medieval city walls were beautiful...don't miss walking the gardens.

If you get the chance to attend a Sunday night Evensong, please do so! What a lovely experience! The service lasts exactly an hour, and on Sunday nights, the choir sings most of the service. Truly lovely!

While visiting our niece who is attending New College, she lead us on a tour of the campus. She showed us where some of the scenes of the Harry Potter movies were filmed. I loved the architecture of many of the old buildings.

It was lovely how quiet it was in the cloisters. Beautiful architecture. Harry Potter fans will recognized it as Hogwart's courtyard. The New College also had a small but lovely garden at the back.
