Radcliffe Square


I think we should start with Radcliffe Square to meet Oxford. It was named after a graduate of Oxford University, a philanthropist and personal physician of King John Radcliffe. It's an amazing place with its graceful architecture. One of the most notable buildings in the square is the Oxford Book Depository, or as it is often called, the Radcliffe Camera. Interesting fact: this is where the Hogwarts Library shot scenes of events for Harry Potter movies.

Christ Church Meadow

Fields, Scenic Lookouts

Beautiful green park, where you can spend time in a calm and peaceful environment, sitting on the grass, or walking on bridges, as well as taking many beautiful photos. And if you want to spend time not only outdoors, but also in the museum collections, you can visit the historical museum or the collection of contemporary art.

The Vaults & Garden Café

Cafés, English Restaurants

We offer you lunch in the most beautiful place in the center of Oxford. You can enjoy delicious food under the vaults of an old building or, if the weather is warm, on the terrace, overlooking the historic buildings. Menus vary depending on the day of the week, there are lunch options for vegetarians and vegans.

The Lodge at Ruddington

Brixworth Country Park


On the way to Nottingham, you can stop by the lake to enjoy the natural beauty. The stunning water surface is surrounded by picturesque green meadows and the views are very beautiful.

Old Market Square


Nottingham is known primarily for his stories about Robin Hood. Nottingham Castle is currently undergoing reconstruction, which will last until 2021. However, there are other sights in the city that are definitely worth your attention, such as Old Market Square. A very pleasant place for evening hiking, you can just enjoy the architecture, or ride on the Ferris wheel.

Le Mistral

Mediterranean Restaurants

The menu and wine list of this institution are inspired by France. The interiors are quite minimalistic and quiet. In general, the restaurant is ideal for spending a peaceful evening enjoying delicious dishes. For dessert, you should definitely order crème brûlée, it's just above all praise.
