Another fun filled day here for the students studying at St Peter’s College Oxford. After a highly productive morning of lessons, the students ventured out on a historic and cultural tour of some more of the city’s best attractions.
First on the afternoon list was the 11th century partly ruined Norman medieval Oxford Castle. Originally the castle was moated and constructed from wood, but then rebuilt in stone in the late 11th century, it played an important role in the conflict of anarchy. Students then made their way over to Magdalen College to tour around the magnificent grounds. The gardens are most renowned for The Grove Deer Park, which takes up the largest proportion of the college’s grounds. Students gazed upon the creatures, comparing them to the previous deer they had seen at the Cotswold Wildlife Park.
All students quickly jumped at the opportunity to go Punting again, as it proved to be extremely fun and somewhat challenging last time. The unfavourable weather did not dissuade the students from selecting the activity over visiting the Ashmolean Museum instead.
Unfortunately, the bad weather persisted all afternoon. The rain soaked students returned to St Peter’s to quickly dry off, change and sit down for a wonderful warming meal all together to catch up on the days adventures with their peers. Students continued to shelter from the rain in the evening and were led in several indoor activities, and caught up with their homework. The sun is meant to come out tomorrow!
