“A touch of Venice”
Reviewed April 18, 2014

Curious to find the Bridge of Sighs in Oxford, but there it is, arching across between two Colleges, and a classic place to take a selfie.

“Nothing to see”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

You cannot access this as it is part of a college. It doesn't even look like the Bridge of Sighs - it actually looks like the Rialto.

Reviewed April 15, 2014

An iconic photo opportunity in Oxford. It is part of Hertford College and it a beautiful spot to shoot a few photos of yourself in Oxford.

“A surprising find”
Reviewed April 3, 2014

This is a fun find as long as you don't expect to go inside. It spans a small windingroad that leads out to High Street that is also worth walking down just for the fun of seeing domestic Oxford.
