A fantastic day trip to Oxford, the City of Dreaming Spires. It’s famous the world over for its University and place in history. For over 800 years, it has been a home to royalty and scholars – and this historic university town is also home to the Oxford Centre for Hindu Studies.
During the day, you will be able to wander around Oxford town centre and take in the sheer magnificence of the architecture of the university buildings, and get a feel of why the place inspired people like Indira Gandhi, Manmohan singh, Tony Blair, Bill Clinton, Vikram Seth, and VS Naipaul to name but a few.
There are many colleges open to the public (entrance fee), as well as museums, or perhaps you fancy a punt down the River Thames, or a game of cricket on the grounds of one of the colleges!
A Picnic Lunch will be provided, and we’re also hoping to arrange free entrance to one of the famous colleges too. So this really promises to be a day you will not forget in a hurry.
