Getting to places from London is incredibly easy, so we have made it our mission for 2017 to visit some of the UK’s best cities over our free weekends. Our first trip of the year was to a city that we have been dying to get to for a while, Oxford.
If, like us, you are massive fans of Harry Potter fans and are still waiting for your acceptance letter to Hogwarts then Oxford is the place for you! Many of the infamous colleges were used as locations of the films and with the cities’ stunning gothic architecture is is easy to see why they were so inspired to film some scenes on location here. So that you don’t miss out any spots, we’ve put together a quick guide to all the filming locations in the city!
In October last year I decided to have a few days off work to visit Blenheim Palace. It has always been a place I have heard a lot of but not known much about the place. All I knew was that it is huge and that Winston Churchill was born here. Of course because of my love for stately homes (see my post on Chatsworth house for even more big homes) I had to visit at some point!
