An Afternoon in Oxford
On Thursday, Charlie, Chloe and I headed into Oxford for a little birthday celebration for Chloe.
We started off with afternoon tea (/high tea) at The Grand Cafe, which has one of the prettiest interiors I've ever seen (it's also rather beautiful from the outside). The food was delicious, with egg and cress, and salmon and cream cheese sandwiches, plain and raisin scones, with jam and cream, and some little chocolate bites. The tea was also 10/10. It's quite a small cafe, despite the illusion created by the stunning grandeur mirrors, but it's definitely somewhere I'd recommend going if you can get a table.
Following afternoon tea, we did a little sight-seeing, as it's always nice to look around a city you're very familiar with; I think I sometimes forget just how beautiful this place is. We went across to the Radcliffe Camera and the Bridge of Sighs, two of Oxford's best known landmarks.
Then we headed off the do a little shopping, and a couple of hours later hopped on the bus home to attend our favourite pub quiz with some other friends.
Where are your favourite places to go in your city? And what are the best things to get up to there?
Until next time.
