From Windsor we travelled another hour or so to Stonehenge. It was wonderful, even though you can't get very close to it. The weather wasn't really great so there weren't too many people. It is quite an awe inspiring site and bogles the mind to think how people who didn't even have the wheel were able to transport 14 ton stones from a distance of 240 miles away to this site and then erect them
After Stonehenge we were off to the city of Oxford, a very interesting and historic place. Oxford university is actually composed of over 30 different colleges, each with their own buildings and land. The public is not allowed into the buildings but we toured the grounds and common areas. We ended our tour day with a delicious cream tea at one of the Oxford pubs. This was defintiely a place I would like to spend more time. Cathy Orton, I kept thinking about how much you would love this place.
Our hotel in London is a quaint place in a good location. Quite central and it is easy to get around from there. The metro is only steps away. The owners are very helpful and the breakfasts are quite delicious. Cathy Norrie, thanks for recommending it to us.
