What would your ideal day in Oxford entail?

Jump to last reply

If you only had a day to explore and not multiple days or weeks, what would be at the top of your priority list?

We (DH and DS-12 and I) have a long list of things we would like to cover but in your opinion how should we prioritize them? We realize we can't see them all in one day so we have to pick and choose on the day. We need help in narrowing down our list.

Here is our wish list:

1.Tour Bodliein Library either standard or extensive tour--which one do you recommend? Son would be allowed in as he is over 11. We had taken an hour tour of the Library of Congress in Washington D. C. which looks like a European palace and loved it. So we are looking forward to seeing this magnificent library too.

2. Take a walking tour given by the tourist information center to admire the architecture.
3. Ashmolean Museum--which section is recommended? Antiquities of Egypt? The coin collection? Something I didn't mention but should definitely see? How long to spend in there to get a nice flavor?
4. Museum of history of science
5. Magdalen College and New College
6. Oxford Botanic Garden if the weather is nice
7. Christ Church picture gallery
8. Christ Church dining Hall--it was just the inspiration for Harry Potter and not the actual film location. We saw the Harry Potter traveling exhibition in the states where the filmmakers recreated the dining hall set and showed off a whole bunch of props and costumes used in the movie. So given that, is it worthwhile to see the Christ Church dining hall or just view another college's dining hall that allows visitors?
9. Covered market--is it worhtwhile to drop in for a visit?
10. Punting along the river?

Obviously we will not see all of this in one day so which would you keep and which to save for another future visit?
