Oxford, Day 6: A Walk About Town

It’s the beginning of the weekend and it’s off to an interesting start. While heading downtown, there was a car accident on the main road–it was closed off by several fire trucks and ambulances.

There are SO many shops and restaurants in the city center. A good number of them are tourist traps, but there are some cool places worth checking out. I made sure to take pictures of a few store fronts.

The Covered Marketplace is made up of 50 independent shops, so here a few pictures of some passages. 

Alice’s Shop. This is the original store front Alice goes to in Lewis Carroll’s Through the Looking Glass

Tomorrow, I will be heading to Brighton for the day–I am beyond excited to go!
