Scholars and Secrets - Oxford feature for the Irish IndepdendentTuesday, 18 September 2012
My feature on Oxford was in the Independent magazine last Saturday. If you didn't see a picture of my fat face eating ice cream, worry not! The full article is below.
Secrets and Scholars
Visit the Museum of Natural History, where the full size dinosaur skeletons thrill younger children. In the summer, fun workshops and craft sessions are held. The museum will be closed for refurbishment in 2013, though the neighbouring Pitt Rivers Museum will remain open.
Enjoy a pub lunch in the Kings Arms, in the shadows of the Radcliffe Camera.
Stroll around the historic Covered Market and sample some of the best food the city has to offer.
Climb the narrow staircase of the Carfax Tower for amazing views of the city and surrounding hills.
Head to Modern Art Oxford and enjoy a great selection of contemporary pieces from their ever changing exhibits. Next to be featured is the French multi-media artist, Jean-Luc Moulène, whose work will be shown until November 29th.
