Lockdown trip

Rated:

Visited on the outside during the pandemic in 2020 so couldn't go inside. Such a lovely building in a posh part of the country.

A stunning example of British architecture. So well kept, from the building to the grounds, immaculate. Such a relaxed and friendly setting too.

Oxford's finest

Rated:

An array of really impressive buildings in Oxford in the UK and this is one of them, compliments the area which hits you with its Britishness. Found the staff at the library really welcoming and the tour guide was knowledgeable and unrushed.
