Trip Report England revisited 34 years on. Castles, Stratford, and the Fat Duck.

Jump to last reply

This is the second part (of three) of my report of our first extended visit to the Oxford region, since I left Abingdon 34 years ago. At that time, Britain was one of the foremost technological advanced countries in the world. It also had a rich, traditional heritage, full of pomp and ceremony and its country villages oozed old world charm.
So going back to my old stomping grounds near Oxford was not only to see how the region had fared, but also to see if that special feeling we experienced in being part of the English way of life as a permanent resident for 10 years still remained. This time around, I also wanted to be a tourist and revisit some of the top tourist places, and visit a few good English restaurants. The illustrated is given in http://www.artphototravel.net/2012/06/england-revisited-34-years-on-pt2-2/ which includes images and map.
