Overnight Parking for staying at Malmaison

by faithnirvana

We are booked to stay at the new Malmaison Castle hotel but they have no car park. It seems that the trains are on strike on Sunday (when we leave) so only bus service to Didcot Parkway then train. Is it safe to leave a car at the Park and Ride for 2 nights? If not then where would it be safe to park a car overnight. We are coming from South London so bus not an option as it would take us an hour to get to the Victoria bus station.

RE: Overnight Parking for staying at Malmaison

by alancollins

Because so few people risk parking overnight in the Park & Ride car parks your car will stick out like a sore thumb. You could try Gloucester Green, which is 5 minutes walk to the hotel and has an overnight car park, but is expensive if you leave the car there during the day, this is their link http://www.oxford.gov.uk/services/overnight-parking.cfm

Travel Tips for Oxford

Shivers down my spine

by sabsi

We walked around Magdalen College when Barry was on the phone and couldn't understand a word because - as he said - "a tour group just walked by". The tour group happened to be the choir of the college though - they had a rehearsal in the chapel.

As we walked by the chapel again we heard the most beautiful choir voices. We walked in and I was absolutely thrilled by the sound of the choir and by the look of all the students dressed up and everything. Wonderful!

Yes, these are real flowers! My favorite flower that I discovered quite by accident is called fritillaria, or the snakeshead lily. It was painted in a watercolor by Charles Rennie MacKintosh and I found one growing by the side of Pullen's Lane on the way to school one morning. When I returned to CA, I ordered 50 bulbs from Dutch Gardens, a website that is great for bulb orders, only to have them never sprout up in our warm climate! What makes fritillaria so unique is their coloration - a geometric checkered pattern on droopy tulip-looking buds. It's quite unique. I also loved the abundance of daffodils and snowdrops - spread like weeds throughout the UK in the Spring. Remarkable.

Visiting Colleges

by sabsi

Some colleges charge you some Pounds to go in if you look like a tourist, e.g. Christ Church costs £3. It helps if you take somebody who has a student ID of one of Oxford's colleges!

Barry brought me into all the colleges for free with his expired student ID. Thanks for that :)

Santa gets legless in Oxford

by barryg23

Over the Christmas holidays, the Council put these Santa figures above various streets. This one on Cornmarket had it's legs taken, while another one had its pants rolled down.The large number of end-of-term student parties held at this time suggests the likely culprits:)

Old Oxford

by nickandchris

Oxford's city wall remains are scant.It ran from the castle along the southern edge of Broadstreet. Officially there were three gates, north, west and east. These now only remain in name, ie; Westgate Shopping Centre, Eastgate Hotel and St. Michael at the Northgate.
Michael's accommodation on Longwall Street backs on to a few wall remnants.

Amongst modern Oxford you'll find "ye olde" buildings, sometimes home to the most strangest of things! Old buildings mix with the new, easily and pleasantly.
