The Bodleian Library is a stunning architectural and intellectual monument: one of the oldest public libraries in the world, its collection of over 11 million items is housed in a gorgeous, ancient, lofty building. Once you’ve had your fill of the city’s ancient architecture, head to the river to take in some of its natural beauty. A great thing to do, especially during the summer months, is to pack a picnic and go punting along the Thames. After a busy day of sightseeing, head for a relaxing drink at the Eagle and Child, an old pub that was once the favourite drinking spot of C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien.
