Oxford is broken up into many smaller colleges. I did not know his. The guide took us through several of them. The age and the architecture was very interesting. My tour felt rushed but it was enjoyable to get a glimpse of the place.

What a historical and interesting place. We loved walking around the different colleges and learning about the unique history of the schools and of the people who attended or visited there. Worth a train or bus ride from London to visit.
