Windsor Castle, Oxford University , Stonehenge

We had no Internet for two days so I couldnt blog. Yesterday we went to St Paul's Cathedral and Kensington Palace. Today we took a bus tour which we don't usually do but we were not disappointed. We started off at Windsor Castle and toured the state apartments. No pictures were allowed which was a disappointment. The beautiful rooms are only in my memory. From there our driver took us to Christ Church at Oxford University. This is where much of Harry Potter was filmed. The university is much too large to see in one day let alone a few hours.

From here we travelled on to Stonehenge. We had a private sunset viewing right into the circle of stones. Normally you cannot get near them but we paid extra for this tour and were allowed to almost touch them. That is because touching is not allowed . We had a great driver and guide and a great day.

Hi Peggy, Sooo Glad you're enjoying your visit to my homeland, been following your progress. At Stonehenge you were only about 1hr. 30 from my home town.
