What splendid weather accompanied our visit on Tuesday. Sunshine in a clear blue sky, though cold enough to require plenty of layers of clothing.
Divided into small groups, our tour began at 1.0pm, meant we had some free time for culture vulturing among the dreaming spires. Our first choice was the Ashmolean Museum, primarily for an injection of refreshments. The refurbishment of the museum a few years ago has resulted in light, airy, and modern galleries which are a pleasure to wander through. Definitely we need to visit again.
The treat of the day was a guided tour of the Bodleian Library. No need to repeat its history here, when you can read up about it HERE, and HERE. We visited The Divinity School, Convocation House, Chancellor’s Court, and Duke Humfrey’s Library. Here’s a short photo record of the library visit.
