Long version: Oh Yes! The day of days in Oxford. Now how many shakes of the kaleidoscope would you like? Will 10 do? 1. Town and gown. 2. Hovels to Hogwarts. 3. Dreaming Spires. 4. Cloisters and quads and towers. 5. Punting. 6. Mediaeval colleges and gargoyles and ancient creaking doors. 7. Dons and undergraduates. 8. Bridges and libraries and gardens. 9. Scholars and wits and celebrated eccentrics and Alice in Wonderland and Inspector Morse and Brideshead Revisited and Shadowlands. 10. Pranks and weird customs and rituals (e.g., Lord Crewe’s benefaction, the encaenia, sub fusc and the once-a-century song to the mallard duck). “There’s no other place like it in the world, it is a despair to see such a place and ever to leave.”
