Oxford, Day 6: A Walk About Town

Originally posted June 1, 2012, this blog post series is an undergraduate short-term study abroad trip in Oxford, UK in partnership with Salve Regina University and St. Clare’s Oxford. The blog post may have been edited for clarity and updated with relevant travel information and links.

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 storefronts.

The British equivalent of Urban Outfitters
The British equivalent of Francesca’s
Shakespeare’s Milkshake
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!
