Bristol - Oxford

Distance - 85 miles

Oxford is the centre of education in the UK. The university is recognised throughout the world and is a significant part of British educational history. The city was the stronghold of Charles 1 during the English civil war. Oxford is also where authors such as J.R.R. Tolkien and Lewis Carroll met and discussed their ideas and of course the Great Hall where Harry Potter's famous dining room scenes were filmed. The children had a guided tour which tested their listening skills. They asked many questions and gathered lots of information. We left the University and spent a few hours in the city This was another successful day for listening and understanding.
