Oxford's Botanic Garden is beautiful and strolling there was pleasant and peaceful. The admission fee seemed a little high for such a low-key small attraction, but I do understand that it must be expensive to maintain the grounds. Viewed from that perspective I didn't really mind too much. I wandered around with my camera at the ready for about an hour, and crossed paths with a young family, some Oxford students and strolling couples. My biggest disappointment was discovering that the "Tolkien Tree" is no longer standing.

Browse the family gardens, the walk along the river, and the greenhouses. Perfect way to spend a few hours and you can have tea on the High street right after.

One of the many jewels in Oxford s crown. Bow scrape etc
On summers day it of course is idyllic, don't forget to look out for the Cheshire Cat.

Nice gardens to visit. Very peaceful away from the busy city centre. Nothing dramatic to view. Just a clam interlude on a busy day.

Spent a lovely morning visiting this garden. It was immaculate and a delight.
The greenhouses were interesting as was the Medicinal Garden.
A peaceful haven in the middle of a bustling City.
