I've been to the Catholic Church in Woodstock as there was a black woman from Africa having her presentation on African poor children. She had a very hard life, her father, husband, two sons and all her brothers were killed during the genocide. She was thinking about a suicide many times after such a tragedy and blaimed God for everything that had...more

The Black Prince is my favourite pub in Woodstock and on both my trips to the village I’ve visited it. The pub has a nice interior with a good selection beers. Inspector Morse fans might recognise it as the scene of a murder in "Last Bus To Woodstock", the first Morse novel by Colin Dexter.
Woodstock is 8 miles north of Oxford and while you could cycle or even walk between the two, taking the bus or travelling by car is probably your best bet. There are regular buses to Woodstock from Oxford though these stop very frequently meaning the journey can take some time.
Favorite thing: Woodstock’s best known attraction is Blenheim Palace, where Winston Churchill was born and lived as a child. The home has been in the Churchill family since it was first built in the early 18th century. John Churchill, the 1st Duke of Marlborough and an ancestor of Winston Churchill, was the first person to live here. Blenheim Palace is open to the public but remains a family home.
