It’s always nice to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and Oxford was the perfect escape. Oxford is a city in England that is most known for the iconic University that some of the greatest scientists, prime ministers and even wizards (Harry Potter) have lived.
When I think of Oxford my first thought is the University of Oxford, a school that everyone knows about, it is one of the oldest universities in the world and always finds itself in the top 10 list of best universities in the nation. The Bodleian Library is the second largest library in England, which is second to the British library. When you’re walking around the university campus it seems that you’re in a movie, a place that is unbelievably beautiful. I don’t understand how there are real people that go to school in these amazing buildings. I was just in awe of the surrounding areas and would definitely not be able to focus on my school work, but then again it is a high honor to go to Oxford so school must be a focus.
The city of Oxford as a whole isn’t just the university, it is the perfect getaway from the city of London. Oxford holds a lot of history and culture and I think it is the perfect example of the mix of both. The university keeps the historical importance of the city and with a high street that adds a bit of modern touch. Oxford is definitely a city that I will be coming back to.
