Local Touring   Leave a comment

Last week, a friend from the States came to visit Oxford. As she hadn’t been to the UK before, we explored the local sights: Oxford city and colleges; the city of Bath, home to hot spring baths from the Roman period; Blenheim Palace, a stately home that was the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill; and of course London, where we visited the Tower of London, Buckingham Palace, the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, the Greenwich Royal Observatory, and the Royal College of Surgeons’ Hunterian Museum.
