Oxford Botanic Garden entrance

Oxford Botanic Garden

Enjoy my pictures from Oxford Botanic Garden, taken a few days ago. I don’t know much about the name of the plants, so this is a mainly-pictures kind of post. The penultimate picture is of a Jewish cemetery in front of the Botanic Garden, dating back to the 12th and 13th centuries. The last picture […]

Windsor Castle

Windsor Castle

Windsor Castle was on my list of places to visit for a while and we’ve been in Windsor a few times, but never when the castle was open to the visitors. I highly recommend visiting the castle, but also allowing for about 4 hours if you don’t get an audio guide and about 5 if […]

Pendon museum

Pendon museum is a lovely place which ‘preserves the idyllic rural scene and transport of the 1920s and 30s in a miniature form for future generations to enjoy’. The models present parts of the English countryside and not a specific place. The amount of details is so impressive. I shared a lot of pictures, so […]

Wheatley Mill

Wheatley mill

Wheatley mill is a lovely place to see in Oxfordshire. We visited the mill in their last open days of the year. It is worth checking if you are close to Oxford next year. The guides are knowledgeable and the site is well worth seeing. Enjoy the pictures!

Room at History of Science Museum

History of Science Museum

History of Science Museum is just a few minutes from Bodleian, next to the Sheldonian Theatre. It is free to visit, but they do accept donations, and they also have pretty interesting things in their gift shop. They don’t have tea rooms, but Bodleian’s tea rooms are on the opposite side, so you can have […]

Desserts at Nosebag

Nosebag, Oxford

I’ve been to Nosebag in Oxford twice. The first, time I went there with the lovely Galina at chezmaximka.blogspot.com. She recommend this place to me and I loved it. That time I had a delicious vegan truffle and I said I’m going to get it again. For my birthday we wanted to get desserts somewhere, […]
