I have never really been impressed by a university campus before our visit to Oxford University today.
Walking around the campus, I was surrounded by the most amazing architecture. I see why the city of Oxford is known as the ‘city of the dreaming spires.’
I also know why they chose to film parts of the Harry Potter films here. Do you remember the infirmary scene from the first movie? It was filmed here in the Divinity School building of Oxford University:
Oxford is one of those towns that is really worth a visit, and ideally for a lot longer than we spent here. One night didn’t do it. I think I could easily have spent a week.
Where’s your favorite university campus?
