Girls: Whistles clothing...
Girls: Whistles clothing store is the most amazing store I have even been into. I couldn't afford anything because the pound to dollar ratio was so horrible, but this store makes me teary-eyed. When Ilana and I got sad and missed home, we would go there and pet the clothing. Top Shop and Ms. Selvridges don't compare, but they're in my price range. OASIS is my other favorite - a huge chain throughout the UK. It's great.

It was nice to be in the midst of these old college buildings in Oxford. Just think, many great knowledges that have shaped human minds for centuries originated in this place.Related to:

It commemorates the deaths of the Protestant martyrs Archbishop Cranmer and Bishops Ridley and Latimer who were burnt at the stake in 1555 and 1556 during the reign of Catholic Queen Mary.
This is one of the few still remaining sections of the medieval wall that once surrounded the city of Oxford. This one is near Christ Church.
It worth a visit as you can see in the picture.
St Aldate’s is one of the busiest streets in Oxford.
There are so many interesting places and buildings on this street. You can also catch local buses from here.
From memory, this delightful little village isn't far from Woodstock in Oxford.
I can only remember there was a little pub, and a whole row of these adorable, authentic old thatched cottages.Related to:

The walk from Christ Chruch to the river takes you past very scenic parts of Oxford. I go jogging here quite often and the views of Christ Church and th eother colleges are amazing.
Home to three of the prettiest colleges in Oxford, and with the sort of shops you won't find on any High Street, Turl Street is a must-see for any visitor to Oxford.
Oxford in Winter
Most tourists arrive to Oxford in summer, but to escape the crowds, winter can be a good time to visit. It's definitely worth it on those cold, bright days, when Oxford looks really great.
I love indoor markets and it's always nice to find one when travelling. Oh well, Oxford has one as well :)
Opening hours are 8.30am - 5.30pm (Monday to Saturday).
