I find myself with a free day in Oxford on Tuesday - taking my wife there for a course.

Do I

a) wander round the shops, and spend too much money, :(
b) wander round the halls, looking at the architecture, :sleep:
c) take tubs of T-cut and polish with me, to while away the time ..., or
d) any suggestions ? :idea:


PS Has the Oxford University term finished for Easter yet ? ;)

Hello fellow Cardiffian of to Oxford for the Day well let me think :idea:

[a] I could wander with you and help you spend your money :D

Architecture is OK and can be very interesting ;)

[c]If you fancy a bit of polishing your welcome to do mine (y)

[d]Suggest you find the best Auto accessory shops and kit out the bus while your there EG- 18" chromes /induction kit/bucket seats/a bit of grafix/etc and Ime sure after the course the mrs woudnt even notice its been done :p :D
 
Don't bother with galleries on mondays they're all shut :( Only place that would let me in was christ's college collection.

Edit: if you're going on a tuesday go to the ashmolean :D
 
There is loads to do in Oxford.You can walk around the Radcliffe Gardens.Or look at the architecture.There are some excellent book shops,& cafés around St Jiles.Or go look in the Museums.There is a really good second hand record shop near the bus station as well.
 
ah the memories of oxford... everywhere is a disabled space and far tooo many push bikes lol... and that beautiful parking fine i got makes me wanna go back! :mad:
 
Thanks for all your suggestions. (y)

PNL, you wouldn't want to travel to Oxford in my car - you'd think you were stuck in a slow motion movie, compared to your Stilo. Still, I like to think of it as the same kind of slow motion used by the Bionic Man. :D

Unfortunately my wife doesn't drive (yet), and doesn't fancy learning the Ulysse. Maybe we'll be adding a Punto to the family soon, to get her mobile...:)

Helz, do they allow Fiats in Oxford, or is just bikes and 'posh' cars ? :rolleyes:

Got a good list of options now, including a couple of museums and bookshops and a good look around, and a brief visit to the VW dealer to look at Golfs and Sharans (for work :bang:). The Oxford Story and the punting look good for a return visit with the kids.

And if all else fails, I'll take my unicycle, find a secluded place and practise falling off it. :eek:
 
Take the Unicycle to the town square and earn a few bob doing demo's for the tourists:D

I think I'd need to be able to ride it first! It's new and so far I'm pretty hopeless. That's why I could do with practise time.

I'd earn more by hiring it out for people to have a go themselves ;)

....maybe you shouldn't....
 
Do what I did last time I was there.

Park a 14 seater minibus in a pay and display bay on a street

pay for said pay and display ticket

Go into town and spend copious amounts of time and cash in HMV.

Have a drink in a pub with everyone

get back to said bus to find you have a parking ticket as apparently you can only park up to a 12 seater in their bays

carry on the journey severly fcuked off!
