If you are looking for a short break within easy reach of London, Oxford is perfect. Even if you aren’t, you should go anyway.

8am – Breakfast at Turl Street Kitchen

You could eat a sad breakfast somewhere nondescript, or you could go to Turl Street Kitchen for a lesson in how breakfast should always be.

9am – The Ashmolean Museum 

The museum features a number of famous works, including The Hunt in the Forest by Paolo Uccello and Turner’s Transept of Tintern Abbey, Monmouthshire.

11am – Oxford Self-Guided Walking Tour

Stick to the centre and you’ll be able to see all the big hitters in two hours with no problem.

1pm – Pick up a packed lunch and head to the Oxford Botanic Gardens

There are lots of benches dotted all over the gardens.

Bag a spot on one of these to eat your lunch before exploring.

3pm  – The Museum of Natural History / Pitt Rivers Museum

The two museums are housed in the same building, so it is definitely worth seeing both of them.
