On the Road is a weekday feature spotlighting reader photo submissions.
From the exotic to the familiar, whether you’re traveling or in your own backyard, we would love to see the world through your eyes.
Good morning everyone,
Today we rejoin a trip, already in progress!
From Blenheim, we went on to Oxford. We only had about three hours there, so we did not visit any of the colleges, choosing instead to have a leisurely lunch at the Turl Street Kitchen and wander around the town a bit.
The day after we visited Blenheim and Oxford, we went to Glastonbury, which was amazing. The size of the monastery must have been incredible!
The front of the Ashmolean Museum. It was a terrific place to visit, and the Pompeii exhibit was excellent.
This is inside the quadrangle of the Bodleian Library.
The Radcliffe Camera, a reading room for the Bodleian.
Just a shot of one of the streets in Oxford.
The nearly obligatory picture of the Bridge of Sighs.
Ruins of St. Mary’s Chapel, Glastonbury Abbey
King Arthur’s tomb
Another shot showing part of the ruins. The abbey must have been enormous!
In the first picture , the car at the front is either parked or they are driving on the wrong sides of the road . ;-)
@Jim: Probably one of Trump’s diplomats.
This is really my dream trip. I recognized all the Oxford locations due to obsessive viewing of Morse, Lewis, and the terrific Endeavour.
The library is amazing.
These are wonderful! Thanks for sharing.

Fabulous old town, and the ruins of the abbey are tremendous. Had no idea there was a tomb of King Arthur! We saw the tomb of El Cid in Spain, one of three said to be his tomb, anyways…
POMPE II is showing? I haven’t seen Pompe 1 yet!!!!
I love Oxford and places around there like Tadsfield (lol, sorry no). Minster Lovell otoh…
The Ashmolean is a very special place to me, because that’s where I got to see all the teeny tiny inscribed beads – they weren’t even scarabs – that Arthur Evans saw because he was That myopic.
Otherwise it’s too personal.
Wait until you hear about Malcolm X.
Me too. They walk by the Radcliffe Camera about 1000 times a day as they discuss the latest murder.
